Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating their 500th sketch this week. WOW! Like many, this is one of my favorite weekly challenges to play along with. Who doesn't love a great sketch(?), and the ladies at FMS never disappoint with theirs week after week. I couldn't let this go by without playing along.
Linda is our hostess with a great sketch and I liked how she explained her inspiration for adding the five elements for the 500th sketch. Very clever Linda!
I actually have two cards. This first one is a larger 5 x 7 inch card. All supplies except the gold pearls are from Gina K Designs. I used her new larger Wreath Builder System to make the top stitched panel. The Wreath Builder is really addicting once you get going with it, LOL. All of the stamped images used with the Wreath Builder and the stamped images on the background panel are from the GKD set called Fresh Flowers, and I used the coordinating dies as well. For the background panel, I used an acrylic block to stamp the flower images, using the "stamping off" technique. I stamped just a few flower images, then using the GKD Fall Flourish stencil, I very lightly added the flourish pattern in Fresh Asparagus ink.
