Last night I went to Chili’s for dinner with my friend Danielle and then we went to see my friend Andrew perform with his A Cappella group at the Long Island Children’s Museum. They opened for another group called Cluster. Both of them were amazing! It really is incredible what they do, they make it sound like there are instruments involved and there aren’t any. You can check out cluster on iTunes and you can see my friend Andrew and his group perform by clicking here.

Now for today’s post which is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. This week’s sketch is provided by Narelle…
Pretty neat layout huh?! The base of my card is Old Olive Card Stock. I used a small piece of paper from the Season of Style Designer Series Paper Stack for the background. The strip of Cherry Cobbler that goes across the middle is embossed with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. My panel in the middle starts off with a piece of Old Olive and adhered to to of that is a piece of Gold Foil Sheet. The flags are more Gold Foil Sheet that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. For the greeting I stamped the got mistletoe from the Very Merry Tags Stamp Set in Old Olive and used the Extra Large Oval Punch to punch it out. Some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details fills in the berries and the lips are from the Best of Love Stamp Set and are stamped in Cherry Cobbler and adhered with a Stampin’ Dimensional. Sometimes you just need a traditional holiday card and the Gold Foil Sheet pairs really nicely with the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler. Thanks for taking a little time to stop by and see my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Narelle. Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
