Freshly Made Sketches 198: Thanks

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Cindy Lovell!


I had a lot of false starts with this one.  It's not the sketch's fault - I just struggle with tilted things!! It's funny how we all have our bug-a-boos - a large chunk of the FMS team gets stressed out over circles on the sketch.  I happen to love circles, but tip a panel even just a little bit and I'm blocked.  In the midst of my stress, I got an order from Lil' Inkers that included the "thanks" word die which is in such a fabulous font - I decided simply to showcase it. I just layered up a pretty piece of paper and some coordinating cardstock - and plopped the "thanks" on it!

FMS Thanks

Have fun with this one!!  And mark your calendars for the big day.  Help us celebrate out 200th sketch and also earn a chance at one of the many, many sponsored prizes!


SUPPLY LIST

The lighter peach is the retired Stampin' Up cardstock Crisp Cantaloupe.  The patterned piece comes from We R Memory Chalkboard 6x6 pad which is very difficult to find.  It's one of my favorite pads in recent years so I've been running out, but I just found one at Amazon and I've also found individual sheets at Frantic Stamper.

I'm with you, Kim: tilted is daunting. Even so, you've created a card that is ever so pretty: the colours, and especially the floral papers, are perfect backdrops for your new thanks die. Inspired and inspiring!

I never would have guessed that you were blocked! You did a great job showcasing that sentiment and adding in some pretty patterned paper and a cool textured background!

I'm with you on the tilted panels and I love circle elements on cards! You did a great job by making the die-cut thanks the focus. And such gorgeous colors too!

Oh Kim! This card doesn't seem to have stressed you out at all! The tilted panels turned out magnificently! It's so pretty! That paper is so lovely! Love the sequins and pretty colours!

Well, "plopping" this fab sentiment on those great prints and patterns was perfect! And your sequin colors....love them!

First, I have to say what a fun trek it was to get to this post! All of your Halloween cards are FABULOUSLY FUN and funny, too! Now, for the FMS card, it is so beautiful! I love the pretty colors and can see why you love the DSP print. It's a fabulous piece to use behind the "thanks".
