Happy Wednesday! It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Our hostess for this week is the talented Jacquie, and she has created a layout that has a lot of room to play!
I have been on a "use your gorgeous papers" kick, and chose that first - one of the beautiful Honey Bee Team Tie-Die papers. If you don't have this paper pack, you simply must get it. It has beautiful backgrounds that each of the HB team members made themselves - and they're all amazing! I used one of the pieces I trimmed for the lower part of the sketch (most of it is hiding under the sentiment, but you can see the pink on the left).
I decided to use my big Love You Stamp & Die XL from Hero Arts for the main part of the card, cutting the die twice (lavender and white cardstock), and adding one of the sentiments to follow the sketch. I wrapped the side with metallic blue thread from Kreinik and added five iridescent sequins for fun.
I hope you will join our sketch challenge this week, and add your creations to our gallery! This challenge will end at 3:00 EDT time on Monday, August 9. Be sure to take a peek at the gorgeous cards my teammates have made on the FMS blog!
