Freshly Made Sketches #120- A sketch by Rita (and Sale-A-Bration sneak peek)

Another miserably cold week in Minnesota. The schools have closed 3 times this month due to extreme wind chill temperatures, and there is a possibility they might close again on Monday. Arrrggghhh! We need some relief! I am not a fan of winter at all, and this one tops the all time worst list. Anyway, I did get some time this week to participate in the Freshly Made Sketches challenge. I missed out last week because I was just too darn busy.

Here is my take on the sketch:

I used the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper on this card, which you can get for free with a $50 purchase starting January 28. There are a lot of fun colors in this pack. I picked this one because the flowers kind of coordinated with the stamp and it only showcased a few colors. That way the paper doesn't distract too much from the stamped image. I also added some bling in the center of the flowers to mimic the bold centers of the flowers on the paper. You can color our Rhinestone Basic Jewels with a sharpie to change the color, but I thought having a black center might be too much.

Cardstock- Whisper White, Basic Black

  1. Oh this set is perfect to use with the banners! Lovely with the DSP too! What a pretty card. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  2. What a beautiful card! I love this stamp set with this sheet of dsp. I know it's cold in Minn. when schools close. I guess my 30 degree day in Texas isn't so bad after all. :) Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
