Freshly Made Sketch #12 by Jen!

Here we are!  Thanksgiving already!!  I am thankful for many things. but one thing in particular is all my crafty friends out there!  Jen has a great sketch for us this week!

Although I was tempted to do another Thanksgiving or Christmas card, I decided to go with a all occasion card using the stamp set, Creative Elements.  

The background is actually one of the stamps from the set, stamped randomly in three different colors (Pretty in Pink, Riding Hood Red and Pool Party).  The other images are stamped in Riding Hood Red or Pretty in Pink.  I stamped the focal flower three times and cut out layers to add some dimension.  I also outlined the flower using a glitter pen.  

I made this card at 4AM...after a couple of days recovering from the two day craft show.  I don't bounce back like I used to!  LOL

Another fun sketch from the ladies at FMS!  Be sure to stop by and check out the samples, and be sure to enter yours!  

stamps:  Creative Elements
cardstock:  Whisper White, Riding Hood Red

  1. Ooh, so pretty, Lauri! I love that background you created using different colors - so creative!! And that dimensional flower is stunning - yet another set I totally glossed over in the catalog...

  2. Truly we are our own worst critics. I think this is beautiful! I love the layered flower and the colors especially! Don't be surprised to see a CASE of this come Valentine's Day. ;-) Have a happy Thanksgiving!

  3. Beautiful card! And I LOVE the background! Pool Party sneaks in again looking fabulous - that color is everywhere these days and always looks wonderful! Just GOING to a craft fair these days wears me out :)

  4. Lauri, this is beautiful! I was just using this set this morning myself---but NOT at 4AM! Yikes! I hope I can play with the sketch this week!

  5. What an awesome background Lauri! It's so nice when we can create our own designer paper! I love your multi-layered flower with just a bit of glitz too!

  6. Such a pretty card Lauri! That flower is stunning! Thanks for the inspiration! Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving :)

  7. Lauri, for a 4am project, I think you have executed this card beautifully ... I love that multi-coloured background and yep, that Pool Party is such a stunning colour it always adds that little bit of extra wherever it used ... love that big bold flower too ... this is fabulous!!!

  8. Wow! So many great elements on that card!

  9. Very pretty card, beautiful layered flower.


Thank you SO much for taking a few minutes to leave me a note!
