Looking back, I was thinking that some of my very best work was inspired by various sketches, although I do not always link up to them. Here is my card for this week's Freshly Made Sketch!
For this card I used a retired tag stamped with Vintage Verses from the 2013 Saleabration collection. I'm a bit of a hoarder with my stamping supplies, so when I find really great things I'm sometimes reluctant to "use them up". On a side note, I wish I could say the same with paper...but that's another post! For this card I used a base of Crumb Cake and sponged the edges with Whisper White Craft Ink. I layered the tag and then folded two doilies in half before adhering them to my card front. Next I stuck the Pool Part rosettes in the middle using some Stampin' Dimensionals. (The rosettes were made with my 1 3/8 inch circle punch). I added some large pearls and finished it off with a bit of Pool Party Seam Binding (retired). The whole thing reminds me of a nosegay!
I am hoping to play along with some sketches on a regular basis, but I hope you enjoyed peeking at today's card (and I even think I know who I'll give it to!) Thanks for stopping by!
