Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #408

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  I'm just looking out the window at my maple tree that is a blazing red!  It's so glorious!  I wish they could stay this colour all year!  Don't get me wrong, I like green trees but the red just stand out so nicely (and it's almost one of my favourite colours!).

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess is the amazing Jennifer Timko!  Jen is our resident pilot and colour artist!  I am always in awe with the gorgeous cards and projects she creates!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I kinda know what I wanted my card to look like when I started making it.  Thankfully.  Now, looking at the picture I wish I had matted the DSP with some copper foil but I didn't and there's not much I can do about it now!!  I love this DSP from the Brightly Gleaning Specialty DSP pack.  All that copper foil makes my heart happy!  I paired with some Night of Navy cardstock and the Hammered Metal Embossing Folder and voila!

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Night of Navy, Copper Foil
DSP: Brightly Gleaning Specialty
Stamps: Christmas Gleaning
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has made.  You definitely will be thankful you did!  They are incredible!

Have an amazing day!


  1. Gorgeous paper and you showcased it beautifully!

  2. A perfect sketch to let this pretty dsp shine! I wish I could come see your tree! We have a Japanese maple, which has pretty red leaves but other than that we don't get much of a color show here in Texas. :(

  3. This is so beautiful. The texture, the colors, shiny copper look fantastic together! And I hear you on the colorful trees. This is a beautiful time of year!

  4. Love your card, that print is fantastic!

  5. Beautiful card & great take on the FMS challenge. Love that paper!

  6. So, so pretty! I love this paper and the copper. Thinking that I "need" that embossing folder!

  7. This is such a fabulous way to show off that amazing paper!!
