Freshly Made Sketches: Big Hugs

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

I had a complete and total lack of mojo last week and didn't even play along with Freshly Made Sketches.  That darn mojo still hasn't found its way back to me - so I looked through my stash for something that would create the card without much help from me.  And as luck would have it - I had something!

This is a Spellbinders die set with three layers giving it fabulous dimension.  I must have played around with it sometime in the past because I even had multiple layers cut in different colors (and I don't usually pre-cut nor keep scraps.) It was definitely meant to be!  I pulled out the freshest colors and then found some subtle patterns for the edges in keeping with the big borders on the sketch. I did break with the sketch a bit in that I used a die-cut sentiment so plopped it right on the main panel.

I needed this easy card - and these cheerful colors.  I'm not going to say that my mojo is in full force again, but I definitely was in a good mood when I finished this up and am looking forward to being in my craft room the next time!

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches
