Freshly Made Sketches 125

I will start off by saying that it is freezing cold here! Now that I got that out of the way! I had a nice Friday, work was quite calm which is always good for a Friday. I went out to dinner with Bill and Anthony to Friday’s and had some Tennessee Whiskey Cake… YUM! Andrew stopped by for a bit after dinner and this morning I’m off to Manhattan. Hopefully I won’t freeze fast to the sidewalk! LOL! To be honest, I don’t even mind the cold that much when I’m walking around in the city. I will make sure and take some pictures for you tomorrow too. 🙂

Now on to the post. Today’s card is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Our sketch this week is provided by the talented Narrelle…

Freshly Made Sketches #125

While this week’s sketch is really simple, I enjoy it a lot because it allows for so many different interpretations. The base of the card is Basic Black Card Stock and for my background I used a piece of Kaleidoscope Designer Series Paper backed with a piece of Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum. My greeting comes from the Yippee-Skippee! Stamp Set, is stamped in Basic Black and is adhered to a piece of Gold Foil Sheet that was cut out with the On Film Framelits Dies. The three gold stars and the chevrons are all cut out from more Gold Foil Sheet from the Circle Card Thinlits Dies. The elements are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I really like the way this card turned out because it reminds me of movie clapboard. Action! LOL! My card is just one of the many that could have been made based on this sketch. Sometimes a simple sketch is a great place to start because the possibilities are endless. I hope you have a great Saturday and thanks as always for stopping by to check out my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches sketch challenge!
