Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #248
Happy Wednesday! I hope you're enjoying your week! I know some of our American readers have kids heading back to school next week! We are still in summer vacation mode and are enjoying a week long visit at my mom and dad's. The boys are in Grannie and Papa Heaven! Hockey, baseball, soccer, basketball oh and don't forget Monopoly! They are getting their fill of attention and games!
We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches. Our hostess this week is the incredibly talented Linda Callahan. Linda makes amazing cards! She also has a great sense of humour and her blog posts pretty much always make me laugh!
Okay, so I saw the feathers on Linda's sketch and knew I needed to use my Lil Inkers Fancy Feathers set. I decided to use some white embossing powder on vellum (after a few tries of other colours on other paper didn't work!). I love black, white and red so I decided that would be my colour combination. At first I didn't have an embossed background but the card needed something so I used the Softy Falling embossing folder to give the background some texture.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red, Vellum
Stamps: Fancy Feathers (Lil Inkers), LJD Pretty Poppies (MFT - sentiment)
Ink: Stazon, Versamark
Other: Softly Falling Embossing Folder, White Embossing Powder, Fancy Feathers Dies, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and take a peek at the beautiful cards the Design Team has created!
Have a fabulous day!
