Freshly Made Sketches #200

Hey Everyone

It’s here!!! It’s our 200th Challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  For this special celebration we have sponsors donating wonderful prizes. Take a look at all the amazing sponsors below – they have truly made this challenge into something special!

FMS Final 200 Sponsors-001

Here’s our sketch for you to create your card.  This sketch can be interpreted in so many different ways (as is shown by the fabulous inspiration from the Clean Team and all of the Design Team members from the sponsored companies).


I had a day off work last week and I think I spent half the day trying to put a card together. Instead of a straight line through the middle of the sketch, I cut my cardstock on an angle just for something different.  I know I have a few more layers on my card than what is on the sketch, but if you know my cards, you’d know how hard it is for me to keep the layers to a minimum.

The colour combo I’ve used is Whisper White, Basic Black and Coastal Cabana.  My “Thanks” sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!s Greetings Thinlits and is cut twice and glued together. I then added a layer of Crystal Effects to give it a glossy finish – it’s a bit hard to see the glossiness in my photo but it’s there.  The “To a Good Friend” sentiment is from Stampin’ Up!s Happy Birthday Everyone set.  The DSPs I’ve used are Stampin’ Up! packs.  The Basic Black paper is from Everyday Chic DSP and the Coastal Cabana papers are from a retired stack called Fresh Prints DSP Stack. And lastly the butterfly is from Butterfly Basics.

Here’s my card:


We have loads of inspiration for you over at Freshly Made Sketches, so head over and take a look.  We can’t wait to see what you create! Good luck with the prizes!

Thanks for stopping by.
