Freshly Made Sketch Challenge 4


My sweet friend Lesley invited me to be a GD at her new challenge blog, Freshly Made Sketches!  Thanks, Lesley!  Here’s the sketch:


Lots of possibilities here!  Since the challenge theme is clean lines (no shabby chic here!) I went with the pretty and bold colors found in the Domestic Goddess DP:  Poppy Parade and Baja Breeze!!  Delightful!


Lots of fun dotty stuff going on here!  I used the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder on my tag and big flower:


and the brad and frame from Four Frames continued the theme!  I used a sentiment from Friendly Phrases as well as the “baby” from “Hello Baby” from Petite Pairs…what a versatile set!  I hope you’ll be able to play along with all the talented designers at Freshly Made Sketches too!

Wee Details:

  • Stamps:  Friendly Phrases, Petite Pairs
  • Paper:  WW, Poppy Parade, Baja Breeze, Domestic Goddess DP
  • Ink:  Poppy Parade
  • Acc:  Decorative Label Punch, Itty Bitty Punch Pack, 1 1/4” Circle Punch, Boho Blossom Punch, 5-Petal Flower Punch, 3/4” Circle Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch, Ruffled Ribbon, In Color Brad, Pearls,  Stapler, Dimensionals


Cassidy and Grampy “playing”!

LeAnne this card is so darn cute! So cheery and bright! Love everything about it!
Congratulations on being a GD on Lesley's new site. I just love the site, but I haven't made into any challenges yet! Where does the time go? Don't know how you keep up designing with so many sites, but I know they all LOVE to have you onboard! Hugs.

Awesome, both card and being GD for FMS!!! I wasn't real fond of this paper in the beginning - you've changed my mind!

Oh so sweet. Grandpa looks like he is teaching her a life long skill. LOL
Love the card with the tag. I need to use tags and that stamp set. I have it and haven't used it. Off to the stamp room.

These colors are simply gorgeous together. I love all those swiss dots and how you've layered the tag. This card is definitely going into my faves!

LeAnne - This is adorable. I love this set of retro style dsp. So Cute to see Cassidy in the SU box & playing with grampa.
