Freshly Made Sketches: Grateful

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jennifer Timko.


I saw that big panel and decided to use a big leaf that I just purchased.  It didn't quite fit - so I stamped it on a full size white panel, cut out the leaf, then cut out the banner.  I put a couple of layers of black cardstock behind the leaf to lift it a bit and give it a small shadow.  (For the shadow effect, I'd like to have lifted it more, but then I would have had to deal with the sentiment that was half lifted too!)

FMS Grateful

I hope to see you playing along this week.  That big open space is wide open for your creativity!!

SUPPLY LIST

The glitter paper is my favorite from Michaels.  The sequins are cheapies probably from Michaels (There are so many wonderfully, elegant gold sequins out there - for this card I wanted brassy and shiny!)

Wow, that leaf looks so awesome! I love the way you've done the background with these beautiful fall colors and given this a touch of glam with the shimmery sentiment and sequins.

Oh my gosh, this is drop dead gorgeous, Kim! I love how you let the color 'spill' a little outside the border of the leaf. Really awesome and artistic design!

This is perfection. I wish this card had come out of my head! I'm just totally without proper words to tell you how much I adore this.
