Freshly Made Sketches #82

Hello there! Thank you so much for taking some time to visit with me today. I always appreciate you stopping by! Let’s see, work was not fun yesterday but the weather was gorgeous! It was definitely a top down kind of day and I did just that right after work. It is supposed to get cooler and rain again late today but I do enjoy the little tastes of warmer days. I have my workshop tonight and everything is cut and ready to go. I really am looking forward to it, I do love to share the therapy that I call Stampin’ Up!

Today’s card – Freshly Made Sketches #82 by Jen B….

Freshly Made Sketches #82

My card starts with a base of Gumball Green and I used a piece of Fan Fair Designer Series Paper for the background. The stamped image is from the You’re Amazing Stamp Set and so are the tickets that are attached with a mini staple. The greeting is from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set and is punched out with the Ticket Duo Builder Punch and pierced with the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack. Some adhesive cork adds some fun texture and grounds the card. I think the Gumball Green looks quite nice with the Island Indigo and the Fan Fair DSP. I hope that you enjoyed my Freshly Made Sketches card for this week’s challenge and that you have yourselves a fantastic day!!

Woo hoo! The color renovation has been announced! I’m so happy that they have kept four of the five 2011-2013 In-Colors! I’m a little sad to see that Lucky Limeade didn’t make the cut but we also got some former In-Colors back too! Bermuda Bay, Soft Sky, Crushed Curry, Pear Pizzaz and Blushing Bride along with a new color Smokey Shadow. They have also moved some colors to different families and of course they are retiring some colors. Say so long to Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, Bravo Burgundy, Not Quite Navy, More Mustard and River Rock. Change is a good thing!
