Freshly Made Fall

Happy Saturday everyone!  I recently discovered another sketch challenge blog to add to my reading list.  I know Freshly Made Sketches has been around for a while but I just discovered them!  Here is this week's sketch followed by my take on it:


Thank you card for FMS47 featuring the Friendship Preserves stamp set and Orchard Harvest DSP.
I really like this sketch...it is so versatile!  I've already used it to create another thank you card design for a swap I am hosting.  I can't post that one until I've sent out the swaps, but suffice to say this sketch made it easy!  I took the liberty of adding the button element to my design, even though it isn't part of the sketch...you know how I feel about embellies!  To stamp the focal image I inked up my stamp with More Mustard ink and then used a sponge dauber to add Cajun Craze around the edges.  I love the way those two colours blend.  Not sure it shows in the photo, but I used my new piercing template to add a pierced border on the Early Espresso mat behind the stamped image.  A really easy way to add interest to any design.  The background piece of DSP is embossed using the new Wood Grain TIEF...that one is fast-becoming a go-to design element for me. If you haven't purchased this one yet you NEED it!

On another note, there is just one more day left to enter my draw for a free month's subscription to Craft Project Central.  Just leave a comment on any post dated August 5th -12th to enter.  I will announce the winner on Monday.  In the meantime, have a great weekend!!
