Freshly Made Sketches #344

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our fabulous sketch has been designed by Cecile Ribon.  Cecile would have to be the Queen of die usage and all things elegant.

Take a look at her sketch:

So first things first…..I kind of flipped the sentiment box and the layering one beneath it by accident.  They were already stuck, photographed and added to my post before I realised I had them reversed….. Sorry Cecile!  I’ll try and get it right next time!

Beautiful Bouquet and matching Bouquet Bunch Framelits Dies are the first thing I thought of when I saw Cecile’s sketch. The matching stamp and die set really fill up the card and add an elegance to the wedding card I created.

The combination of colours I used for my flowers are – Sahara Sand, Crushed Curry & Pool Party.  I then stamped the centre of the flowers in Basic Black Ink as I really wanted them to stand out. The sentiment is also from Beautiful Bouquet and stamped it in Basic Black Ink to match the centre of the flowers.

Because I haven’t purchased myself a huge amount of new designer series papers yet, I decided to add thin strips of Whisper White Cardstock to my Pool Party triangles to add a little interest to the background.  I actually don’t mind this look for a change and will have to remember to do it in the future as I think it jazzes up plain cardstock.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created awesome inspiration for you.  Pop over to the challenge and take a look at their cards.  We would love it if you could play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by.
