Freshly Made Sketches: oh frap!

Edited to add: This is last week's sketch. Be sure to check out 
the Freshly Made Sketches blog for the newest sketch.

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


I like the quirky look of the angled panel so I decided I needed to add another card to my stash for my college student.  I had this "oh frap!" that I hadn't used and it seemed like the perfect fit.

FMS Oh Frap

I then went looking for a coffee cup (or a frappuccino mug!)  I almost hit a roadblock there.  Most of mine were either too big for the card or they were too "nice" for the sentiment. I finally saw this very old set by Papertrey Ink.  It also has cute little swirls of steam and my original card used them until I remembered that frappuccinos are cold.  Bummer, because it was a nice design element.

I hope to see you playing along!

Your son is going to love this! Great colors and a fun take on the sketch, too! That stitched woodgrain looks perfect on that base. Interest without too much froo-froo! I really do like this card. Yep! Bev

Frantastic card! Bold colors and coffee...perfection!

These cups are adorable! This clueless non-coffee drinker would have totally loved steaming cups of frappuccino. Coffee lingo is a foreign language to me but I can smile at this sentiment.

That sentiment! It's perfect for a multitude of reasons! I love this card. The colors, the stitched woodgrain, and the "steamless" mugs all make one fabulous card!

I really love this card and the sentiment that goes with it. And I have to add that your cup in the background really tickled me - I have a daughter that LOVES foxes. :)
