Freshly Made Sketches #121

Hey Everyone

I’ve just had my first day back at work after having had a four week holiday.  It doesn’t take too long to forget you’ve actually been away!  I’m already looking forward to my next one!

The extremely talented and very funny Linda Callahan is our hostess at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  She has created this really interesting sketch that I have to say challenged me.  It took me a little while to get going with my card but in the end I have to say I am really happy with my card – I hope you can see the sketch in my card.


It didn’t photograph really well, but I’ve scored two lines around my card with my scoring tool.  Initially I drew score lines with my marker but after debating with myself for about 1/2 an hour I re-did my card as I felt the marker lines were a little heavy.  I’ve been practising  clean and simple, so it felt strange not to use designer series papers on my card.


We’d love for you to join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  Head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous inspiration from the Design Team.

Thanks for stopping by.
