Freshly Made Sketches 157

Posted on

A very good Saturday to you all! My Friday was pretty good, The weather here was overcast with little peeks of sun, it was a little on the chilly side in the morning but got better as the day progressed. I guess the people in my department missed me yesterday because we all ate lunch together today! After dinner I sadly took my air conditioner out of my window, that for me signifies the end of summer and it was a bummer! LOL! I ran up to IKEA to see if I could get my new blinds, the ones that were here when I moved in were a mixed bunch to say the least. They had them and when I went to put them up wouldn’t you know that one of them was missing the hardware! I will have to wait until Monday to go back, only very brave people go to IKEA on the weekends! I’m off to Manhattan this morning, I have a Stampin’ Up! order to drop off and a few people to see and then I’m going to meet Andrew at Penn Station and we are going to wander around for a bit. I hope that the rain stops, we would like to go across the Brooklyn Bridge and that won’t be any fun in the rain. Fingers crossed peeps!

After I finished my around the house projects last night I sat down and made my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. This week the sketch is provided by Amy…

Freshly Made Sketches #157

Funnily enough I knew that I wanted to use some Burlap ribbon and gold, and that’s just what I did! My card base is a piece of Whisper White card stock. I covered the entire front with a piece of Kraft Card Stock. My center panel is some Gold Foil Sheet that I embossed with the Alphabet Press Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and backed with some Basic Black before adhering it to the card with some SNAIL. Next up is the 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon that is held in place with Sticky Strip. My hello is from the #hello Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black and punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch. My “friend” is form the Let Your Hair Down Host Stamp Set and is also heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black. I adhered both greetings to the Burlap Ribbon with some more Sticky Strip. I really love the Gold and Black with the Burlap and Kraft. I has an elegant yet casual feel to it! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I appreciate you coming by and remember that your visits make all of this possible! Have a amazing Saturday! 🙂
