Freshly Made Sketches 274

Some people like a snow day, I’m not one of those people! I feel trapped! LOL! I don’t have a problem staying in the house unless I feel that I don’t really have a choice, and a snow day is just that! I did have a productive day. I spent a lot of time organizing the house, cleaned out under the bed, threw out lots of stuff. I watched some TV and trudged next door for dinner. This morning I have a haircut and then off to the Store! 😀

Today I have a nice clean card to share with you for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge…

My card base is a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I added a piece of Photoplay This Guy 12×12 Paper to piece of Cyber Grape and added the flags to the left side with Purple Hearts. It was at this point that I decided that I wanted my greeting in the lower right of the panel, put that aside for now! My butterfly is from the Altenew Painted Butterflies Photopolymer Stamp Set and is stamped in Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Deep Iris using my Mini MISTI. I cut it out with the Coordinating Dies. The greeting is from the same set and is heat embossed in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder onto the Woodgrain Paper. I then adhered the the panel to the card with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner and the butterfly with 3D Foam Squares. A few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Orchid and Sparkling Clear Sequins finish the card! I love that butterfly in the soft purples against the bold woodgrain, but then I always like a woodgrain! I hope that you like my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge! Thank you for stopping by to see me! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂
