Freshly Made Sketches #487

Happy Wednesday! It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. The very talented Jen T is our hostess this week, with a slimline card for you!

About seven times a year, my work gets very busy, so I had to miss last week, but am glad to be back! I am the Executive Director of our community theater, and the last two weeks we have had a production with nine performances. I put in many 12-14 hour days during the run, and had to take a break from card making. It was so great to be back in the theater, and hear our audiences laughing every night. The show was "Noises Off." I was super proud of my husband, who was the director, and also my daughter, who played Belinda. It's a funny movie as well, with Carol Burnett and many more name stars. Carol was always one of my favorites growing up. I loved her show. Anyway, on to my card for this week!

I absolutely LOVE this Cummerbund embossing powder, inspired by Catherine Pooler and from WOW! Embossing. It has the loveliest sparkle and beautiful lighter teal color. I cut the Waterbrush Hello (Altenew) out three times on Pool Party (SU!) cardstock, and then embossed the adhered stack. I cut the flowers/leaves out of various colors and textures and arranged them on a very lightly ink blended card base. I used the remaining ink in my blending brush, so it's a combination of several blues, I am sure!

I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery! There is a lot of space to play with. This challenge will end at 3:00 EDT time on Monday, May 31.
