Freshly Made Sketches #48

A good Thursday morning to you all. Were are almost through another week! We had some more “Florida” rain today (as I like to call it). It pours buckets for about 15 minutes and then the sun comes out and it does it all over again. I think it’s supposed to be nice today! I got a lot of questions yesterday asking me how I made the star on my card. As promised, here is the PDF “tutorial”, hope that helps. Thanks for asking! Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge. This week’s challenge has been engineered by Tui…

I really like the layout a lot. I wanted to use a set that I haven’t used in a while so I reached for my World Treasures Stamp Set. I have used the peacock before but never the flowers. The base of my card is Whisper White Card Stock. I added some International Bazaar Designer Series Paper to the left and also three strips across the middle. On the strips across the middle I used the Finishing Touches Edgelits to “pink” the one side. The flowers are markered in Rich Razzleberry and Lucky Limeade. I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get them lined up perfectly. The greeting is also from the World Treasures Stamp Set and is stamped in Lucky Limeade and cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies. I also used them to cut out a piece of Rich Razzleberry to mount behind the greeting. They are all adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For a little bling I put a Basic Jewels Rhinestone in the middle of each of the flowers. I love the color combination and the greeting is great. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge card and that you have a wonderful Thursday! Thank for checking in! 🙂
