Freshly Made Sketches 183

Another pretty nice day here! It was sunny and a bit windy yesterday up until 4:00pm when it started to rain. We are supposed to be back in the 50’s for the next week or so. No more top down in the car for a while! I had a nice evening last night. I Skyped with Andrea for a bit and then FaceTimed with Michael for a while too. Sandy stopped by for a little bit, always love to see her and we are going to get together for dinner soon. The best news ever, my Apple Watch that said it wouldn’t ship until June, I got the notification that it will be here tomorrow!! WOO HOO!! I cannot wait! Tomorrow is Friday!! I have another busy weekend ahead but it’s a lot of fun stuff so it’s all good! What’s going on in your neck of the woods?!

The project that I worked on last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 183

I decided to do a nice clean earthy card! My card base is Whisper White Card Stock and the front is covered in a piece of Kraft Card Stock. Across the bottom is a piece of Brushed Gold with a thin strip of Early Espresso in the middle. My panel is a piece of Watercolor Paper. All of the images and greeting are from the An Open Heart Stamp Set. The leaves are stamped in Mossy Meadow and watercolored. I added some Cherry Cobbler to the berries. For the bird I stamped him in Early Espresso and watercolored him too adding some Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler. The panel is backed with some Mossy Meadow. My greeting is heat embossed with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum and wrapped around the back. I then adhered the panel to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Three Pretty Pink Posh Gold Sequins complete the card. I love stamping the images and then using a wet brush to pull the ink and watercolor them! I also love the kraft with the gold! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. Thank you very much for taking a little time to stop by and see me today! Have an formidable Thursday! 🙂
