Freshly Made Sketch 3

Another fun Freshly Made Sketch!  Doing a "clean" card can be a bit of a challenge if you (like me) think too much about it!  

I interpret clean to have lots of open/white space, while not free of embellishments and layers it has a more open feel to it...not distressed either, but straight lines.

I also decided to use the Summer Soltice set with autumn colors.  Early morning today, lots of activity outside my window with squirrels and chipmunks so I guess they are getting ready for fall.  The trees are changing as well!  

Hope all is well whereever you are!

stamps:  Summer Soltice, Thank you Kindly
ink:  Cajun Craze, Versamark
cardstock:  Whisper White, Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, More Mustard
tools:  crimper, white embossing powder, stampamajig



  1. Lauri, great sketch and I love the stamp and colors you used for it! The crimping is a very nice touch -- I'm all about texture! Hugs!

  2. Great colors for fall and I love the embossing you did! Really stands out - beautiful!

  3. Lauri, your card is beautiful ... love these fall colours, and love how you have continued the floral theme with the embossed flower and the stamped background ... but my fave element on this card would have to be the crimped border, hands down!

  4. I have to agree that your colors are wonderful on this card! Very pretty for all. I love the crimping; I need to remember to use mine more often as it looks so awesome. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  5. That's a wonderful flower to use for any season, but it looks great with fall colors. I like the white embossing and your crimped layers. It's been a long time since I dragged out my crimper! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
