Freshly Made Sketches #65 & Sneak Peek

Good morning everyone! How are we all doing on this fine Thursday? I’m getting better and that’s because we are approaching Friday! I have two Holiday parties this weekend, one on Friday night and one on Saturday night and I’m looking forward to them both. I’m also continuing on with my Spring Catalog sneak peeks for you. Today’s card features products from the 2013 Spring Catalog that you can order from on January 3rd.

For this week’s Freshly Made Sketches Challenge Linda C. has given us this very nice sketch to work with…

Freshly Made Sketches #65

Nice and simple and I kept my card the same. The base of my card is Primrose Petals Card Stock, for the background I embossed a piece of Very Vanilla with the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder* (fast becoming a favorite!). After I embossed it I thought what better to put in a honeycomb than some bees! The bees are from the Collage Curios Stamp Set* and are stamped in Summer Starfruit. The two hearts are form the Hearts a Flutter Stamp Set. The lager one is stamped tone-on-tone with Summer Starfruit and the smaller one is stamped in Primrose Petals on Very Vanilla. Both are cut out with the Hearts a Flutter Framelits Dies*. The are mounted to one another and to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Take a Ticket Stamp Set* and is stamped in Primrose Petals and punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch. What do you think of the color combo? I’m really liking the two together broken up by some Very Vanilla. I hope that you are enjoying your new catalog sneak peeks and that you like my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge. I always appreciate your stopping by and your comments. Here’s to hoping that you have a very nice day! 🙂
