Ahh yes… it’s Thursday already! Woo hoo! This week is just flying by! It was a gorgeous day here on Long Island yesterday, sunny and there was a nice breeze. Unfortunately I was stuck inside most of the day but I did have a productive day at work. Things are being checked off my lengthy to-do list left and right. Getting stuff done and off of my desk is such a good feeling. My boss promised that she wouldn’t check her email but she has been. I may remote wipe her phone if she doesn’t stop! 🙂
Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Cindy…
A nice simple card for a nice simple sketch. The base of today’s card is Perfect Plum Card Stock. The background is a piece of Whisper White that I embossed with the Chevron Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and rounded the corners. The strip of Daffodil Delight is stamped in Daffodil Delight with the Positively Chevron Background Stamp. A pice of Crushed Curry 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon is adhered around the back of the white, I know Crushed Curry Ribbon and Daffodil Delight… I think the Daffodil stamped on Daffodil matches the ribbon quite well actually! The image is from the Chalk Talk Stamp Set and is stamped in Perfect Plum and cut out with the Chalk Talk Framelits Dies. It’s the only image in the set that I haven’t used before and I like it! LOL! Another piece of Crushed Curry Ribbon is tied with a piece of Whisper White Bakers Twine to finish off the card. I really do like the colors together, I think I’m needing some more summer! Thank you for stopping by to see my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. Enjoy your Thursday, I know I will!
