Freshly Made Sketches #53

A good Friday morning to you all! It’s a very good one for me because I am off from work! My cousins and I are headed into Manhattan today so they can do some more shopping. I’m undecided as to whether I want to take the train in or drive. Maybe we’ll go and have some more Korean food for lunch!

Today’s post is for this weeks Freshly Made Sketches but first I want to thank all of you for visiting the Control Freaks September Blog Tour yesterday and also for you wonderful comments. I’m so glad that you liked the projects! Moving right along this week Tui has given us this sketch to work with…

I knew what I wanted to use as soon as I saw this! The base of my card is Early Espresso Card Stock. I used some Candlelight Christmas Designer Series Paper strips and some Champagne Glimmer Paper strips for the background. On top of that is a piece of Very Vanilla that I punched out with the 2 1/2″ Circle Punch. I Then embossed it with the Northern Flurry Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and mounted it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The images and the greeting are from the No Peeking Stamp Set. The greeting is markered in Real Red, Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso and punched out with the Large Oval Punch. I used the same colors for the cute little snowman and cut him out with my Paper Snips. The little bird is stamped in Real Red and cut out too. They are all mounted to the circle with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the sketch and the stamp set is just too sweet! I hope that you enjoyed this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card. Thank you so much for visiting and have a fantastic day! πŸ™‚
