Hello everyone, how are we today? I’m good but that was one big bad Wednesday! I’m glad that’s done and we are almost at Friday! It was a really nice and sunny day here on Long Island yesterday. The weatherman said that it’s just a taste and that today it will be in the 20’s! It was 50 degrees here yesterday, that’s quite a drop! Time for the thick coat once again, maybe for the last time… we can only hope. 🙂 A quick thank you to Theresa for pointing out that I forgot that I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border punch on the right side of the main panel of the card that I posted yesterday! 🙂
So, for today’s post I have my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. I have to say that I really like their re-design that they did over on their blog. This week we have a sketch from Jennifer T….
I have been having a very good run with my visual memory this week. I saw the sketch and immediately thought of the new Best of Flowers Stamp Set. For the base of my card I used a piece of Basic Black Card Stock and the background is a piece of First Edition Specialty Designer Series Paper. A strip of Lucky Limeade is embossed using the Borders Scoring Plate. I pierced the right side and a “Vintage” Sweet Shop Jelly Bean Brad is placed there and some SNAIL and Sticky Strip hold it to the card. The layer behind the main image is a piece of Primrose Petals that I embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The main image, as I mentioned before, is from the Best of Flowers Stamp Set and I used my Primrose Petals and Lucky Limeade Stampin’ Write Markers to ink it. The greeting is from the Essentials Wood Mount Set and is stamped in Basic Black. I backed it with a piece of Basic Black and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love the way the black looks with the Primrose and Limeade, it gives it a touch of elegance. I hope that you like my Freshly Made Sketches Card for this week’s challenge from Jennifer T. It’s always a pleasure to have you visit and leave me a comment, I hope that you have a super Thursday!
