Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate

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

My favorite stamp set out of the new catalog is To a Wild Rose.  I fell in love when I saw it - and have been surprised that it hasn't been given more love out there. When a new catalog comes out, it's fairly clear what the favorites are because you seem them all over blogs, etc. - not so much on the rose. Maybe I just don't follow the people who are using it - but I follow a lot of people!  I LOVE the texture from the layering.

On my favorites list, this stamp set is followed closely by a die set that I guarantee is going to come out over and over - Stitched Labels.  I didn't get the stamp set, just the dies, and they are fabulous.  On this card I used the background die to give a hint of pattern. I cut it twice; it overlaps under the flower but that part is hidden.

I needed to find a tiny sentiment and I found one that fit in an old hostess set.  This card is being used this very day for someone at work who is an avid gardener.  I think it's just right.

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

  1. This is so pretty! Love everything!

  2. This set is one of my favorites too and was on my first order. You've made a beautiful card with it. I love that background die, which I don't even remember being in the catalog. I need to add that one to the wish list.

  3. Very pretty. Love To A Wild Rose also and it is lovely in Grapefruit Grove. TFS

  4. This is so pretty.....maybe I need to revisit that set! The diecut background is wonderful!

  5. This card is just beautiful Kim! I love that background and that flower is gorgeous! So pretty!

  6. This flower really is striking and I suspect it will get lots more love after people are inspired by this beauty. What wonderful colors (and that die in the background...just wow).

  7. This is simply beautiful. I LOVE the texture you used in the background with the die. I think I might need that die now!! Great take on the sketch!
