Freshly Made Sketches 142

Morning already! I feel like I just went to bed! I had to run into Manhattan last night to help a friend with some computer issues and by the time I got home it was 11:20. I still had to make a card and type my post so I sat down at the craft desk, or what’s left of it, and got to work. It’s funny how I can get home that late and still look forward to making something. There was no packing last night however, pending the weather my friend Fred from work is going to come over and we are going to start moving the furniture later on today. Andrew is supposed to help too. Fingers crossed people that it doesn’t rain until the earliest Monday!

The card that I made when I got home last night is for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge from Jennifer B….

Freshly Made Sketches #142

Thankfully it is a nice simple sketch! I started my card with some Very Vanilla Card Stock. The panel is one of the Project Life Everyday Adventure Journaling Cards that I trimmed and rounded the corner with the Project Life Corner Rounder. A strip of Bermuda Bay is embossed with the Arrows Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and adhered across the lower half of the card. I received my new plates for the Texture Boutique yesterday and I’m happy to report that they work great! I used the Circle Card Thinlits Dies to cut out some Crushed Curry for the chevrons and Bermuda Bay for the greeting. Some slivers of Stampin’ Dimensionals adhere them to the card. It needed a little something so I sprinkled some sequins around to finish off the card. I actually like the mix of different arrows/chevrons and love the colors together! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I really do appreciate you taking the time to visit with me and love reading your comments! I hope you all have a nice Thursday! 🙂
