Freshly Made Sketches 147

Posted on

Yup, it’s Saturday and I’m headed into Manhattan to spend some quality time with Kim and her brother and sister! We are going to get some Diner breakfast and wait for them to arrive. They should be in around 12:00PM. I thinking that we will wander around for a bit, something that I love to do as you know! Yesterday was my boss’ birthday so we had lunch together which is always nice. The day was busy but I got a lot done. Next week promises to be busy too but busy makes the day go by. Last night I relaxed for a bit, crafted for a bit and even got in a little TV time. A nice quiet evening is just what you need sometimes!

Before I get to today’s card I want to tell you about a special that Stampin’ Up! is having for the entire month of August.

Now on to the card that I have for you today and it’s for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week our sketch is provided by Jen T….

Freshly Made Sketches #147

Love it! As soon as I saw the stripes I knew exactly what I wanted to do. My card base is a piece of Very Vanilla Card Stock. I covered the entire front with a piece of Brushed Gold Metallic Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Basic Black and some Watercolor Wonder Designer Washi Tape strips go down the right side. Around the lower part I wrapped some Linen Thread and tied one of the new Gold Basic Metal Buttons* to the card. Quite a few Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere the background to the base. My fun mustache is form the Well Worded Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Basic Black Stampin’ Emboss Powder on another piece of Brushed Gold. I used the Mustache Framelit to cut it out and Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place. I love the simplicity of the Black and Gold together and the Linen Thread gives it a little bit of a rustic feel. I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. As always, I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you all enjoy your Saturday! 🙂
