Freshly Made: The Only Choice

Pin It
This is my last week as the guest designer at Freshly Made Sketches.  It's been so fun and so exciting but I admit to feeling a certain amount of stress each week thinking that I need to come up with something totally unique and creative.  Well...I put that all aside this week.  This week's sketch is wonderfully basic which means it is PERFECT for showcasing beautiful paper and amazing sentiments...

Most of my cards are for a church card ministry, but this one is personal.  It's heading to an amazing woman who deals with more than any of us can imagine and does it with great faith and spirit. 

Thanks so much to Lesley and the rest of the Freshly Made design team for letting me share in the fun this month!!  I look forward to playing along for a long time to come!

  • Stamps: My Favorite Things Vertical Greetings
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Peach Parfait, Soft Suede, Poppy Parade, Very Vanilla, Everyday Enchantment dsp
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Soft Suede, Baja Breeze (just sponged on the edges)
  • Accessories: My Favorite Things die, Stampin' Up embossing folder, Pool Party Seam Binding and Butterfly Embosslit
