Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #467


Happy New Year!  I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!  I know we're all hoping that 2021 goes a little smoother than 2020 did!  Hopefully there aren't any big surprises in store for us!  Did you get any new crafting supplies for Christmas that you've been having fun playing with?  I was blessed with the Pierced Blooms dies and have been having a blast with those!!  Any excuse to spend more time in my craft cave!

We have a great new sketch this at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess is the amazing Jen Mitchell!  Jen creates elegantly clean and simple cards that are always gorgeous!  Head over to her blog and check them out!

I always find slimline cards a bit challenging but being challenged is good right?  I might have struggled with this one as well because I kept trying to put the flowers on a white background.  I remembered my favourite DSP (Tasteful Textures) and found some wood paper that worked perfectly!  Finding the perfect flower colour combination was also a struggle!  I decided to cut out tons of flowers in a rainbow of colours!  Maybe too many choices wasn't a good thing!  I decided on white and purple as you can see!


Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black,  Gorgeous Grape, Granny Apple Green, Silver Foil

DSP: In Good Taste

Stamps: Handsomely Suited

Other: Pierced Blooms Dies, Tasteful Labels Dies, Silver Thread, Matte Black Dots

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog!  The Design Team has created a bunch of gorgeous cards!  You don't want to miss out on being inspired!

Have an amazing day!
