Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #61

Happy Wednesday!  I survived my crazy Tuesday!  I am impressed.  I spent the entire day at the school helping the Grade 1 teachers get their brand new reading carts into circulation.  I still have many hours and much laminating to go!!!  When I'm done with that I get to move onto the French books!

Wednesday's are always a great day!  They bring a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week the fabulously talented Jennifer Timko brings us this great sketch!  This week we also say good-bye to the lovely Jen Sannes.   We will miss her beautiful cards on the DT but I know I'll be checking her blog on a regular basis to see her wonderful creations!

I am really stuck on the Very Vanilla and Soft Suede combination.  Forgive me.  I know they're not traditional colours!  I used some champagne glimmer paint to stamp the snowflakes on.  It does look much prettier and sparklier in person.   I had some "help" from Jacob with the picture taking so I finally gave up on getting the perfect picture!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede
Stamps: Serene Snowflakes, Petite Pairs (Sentiment)
Ink: Soft Suede
Other: Basic Pearls, Champagne Glimmer Paint, Very Vanilla Seam Binding, Word Window Punch, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Head on over to the FMS blog to see the other beautiful cards the Design Team has created for you!



  1. So elegant! Love the simple beauty of your card!

  2. So, so pretty! The shimmer paint never photographs as pretty as it is in person. You can tell how lovely and elegant this is though (even with your "help" on the pictures!). I, too, really like this color combination.

  3. I love this elegant color combination, Jen! Those snowflakes are shimmery and gorgeous. I think those little pearls are the perfect touch, too!

  4. Beautiful Jen! Love that color combination!

  5. This color combo is so elegant and the shimmery snowflakes are gorgeous! I love this!

  6. Beautiful, I love the color combination - so elegant and fresh! Love the idea of using the shimmer paint for stamping - I will have to give that a try soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

  7. Ooh, this is CAS perfection .... love the neutral colour pallette ... gorgeous!

  8. I love how clean and elegant this card is! Beautiful color choices and embellishments for a peaceful Christmas card.
