Freshly Made Sketches 182

Yesterday turned out to be a nice day after all. It didn’t rain and actually made it up to 70 degrees! The sun was out and despite the wind it was actually warm. Work was pretty quiet, always a good thing. When I came home I Skyped with Andrea and we crafted together. I had to get a few cards made because I’m off to Scrap-A-Latte tonight to get things prepared for tomorrow night’s class. Taylor is going to tag a long and help so it should go pretty fast. I stopped by Heather’s for a cocktail last night. I had a whiskey sour and really liked it! I got home around 10:15 and took care of some stuff before heading off to bed. Another pretty good day!

One of the cards that I made last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 182

A really neat sketch! My card for today has a base of Whisper White Card Stock. I ran a strip of the Stacked with Love Designer Washi Tape down the left side. The panel is a piece of Smoky Slate that I stamped with the Something Lacy Background Stamp in Smoky Slate. A piece of Fun Foam is adhered behind the panel and then some SNAIL holds it all to the card. The greeting and wreath are from the Your Perfect Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I heat embossed the wreath on Vellum Card Stock with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder and then used my Paper Snips to cut it out. The greeting and leaves are also heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Basic Black. I adhered the wreath to the back of the greeting and then used some Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card. A few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins complete the card. I love the simplicity of the card and the font in the greeting is just perfect! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Nothing brightens my day more than a visit from you so thanks! Have an awesome Thursday! 🙂
