Freshly Made Sketches #428

Hey Everyone

Welcome to another Wednesday and another sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch has been designed by the super talented Amy O’Neill.  Amy’s cards are always lovely, full of fabulous colours and elegant.

It was time I inked up the Happy Birthday To You Stamp Set.  This stamp set lets me continue my love of colouring with my Blends.  I gave the flowers some colour with the Light Purple Posy Blend and I outlined the petals with the Dark Highland Heather Blend.  I coloured the centre of the flower with the Dark Smoky Slate Blend.  The leaves have been coloured with Mint Macaron Blends.  The tiny flower buds have been given colour with the Dark Cherry Cobbler Blend. The DSP I’ve used on my card is from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.

This card is different for me as I’ve used Gorgeous Grape on Gorgeous Grape Cardstock.  Normally I use a Whisper White Cardstock base, but thought it was time I mixed it up and tried a coloured card base. The layer of cardstock has been embossed with my Mosaic 3D Embossing Folder. To give some bling to my card, I coloured three Basic Rhinestones with my Dark Highland Heather Blend. To finish off my card, I added a Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding bow.

I love all the cards the Clean Team have created.  Pop over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
