Freshly Made Sketches #50

Good morning peeps! We are in the home stretch sliding into Friday for our nice three day weekend! I have lots of stuff to do, my family is coming from England for my brother’s wedding. They start arriving on the 10th and I get to see my cousin Tracey! Can’t wait for her to get here! I also get to see my aunts uncle and another few cousins! It’s going to be a good time!

Today’s post is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches. First I want to thank Linda S. for choosing my card as her pick for last week’s challenge! You can see the original post here and the FMS post here. For this week our host is Lesley and she has given us this neat sketch…

I love playing along with each of the challenges each week. It expands my creativity and it’s so nice to see all of the other creations too. My card starts with a base of Crumb Cake Card Stock. The strip across the bottom is a piece of Very Vanilla that I used the Travel Journal Stampin’ Around Wheel with Soft Suede ink on. The patterned paper on the left is from the Floral District Designer Series Paper Pack. For the main image I stamped one of the feathers from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set in Baja Breeze three times. On top of that I used the Beautiful Birthday Wood Mount Stamp in Soft Suede for the greeting. I mounted it on a piece of Baja Breeze and adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The embellishment at the top is made from three feathers, again from the Fine Feathers Stamp Set, stamped in Soft Suede and cut out with my Paper Snips. I threaded some Linen Thread through a Naturals Designer Button and adhered the whole thing to the card with a Mini Glue Dot. I think this card would be great for a masculine birthday and with a quick sentiment change it could be so much more. I hope that you enjoyed this week’s Freshly Made Sketches card and thank you, as always, for spening some time with me today. Have a fun day! 🙂
