Freshly Made Sketches 191

What a nice day I had yesterday! I woke up at 4:00am and left the house by 5:00 to go and pick up Michael. His flight landed early and he was out by 6:45. We stopped at the diner fro breakfast and then headed over to Scrap-A-Latte to see Renee. He had brought some chip board and MDF from Brasil for her to sell in the store so while he set that up I did my cutting for class tonight. We were at the store for most of the day. After the store we stopped by my house to get his luggage and visited with Taylor for a bit. Then we headed over to the pizza place to meet Sue and her husband for dinner. What a nice way to spend a day off from work!

Today I have my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

Freshly Made Sketches 191

A super simple sketch that leaves a lot open for interpretation. I wanted something simple and elegant, you’ll have to let me know if I was successful! The card base for today is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I embossed the Definitely Dahlia Background Stamp on a piece of Basic Black with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. My greeting is from the Happy Birthday Everyone Host Stamp Set and is heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder on Vellum. I wrapped it around the back and then adhered it to piece of “Vintage” Brushed Silver. That is then adhered to the card base with SNAIL and Fun Foam. Three Simon Says Stamp Sparkle and Shine Sequins complete the card. I love the font in the sentient and that Dahlia stamp is great! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you of sharing a part of my day with me, I’m happy that you stopped by! Enjoy your Thursday! 🙂
