Freshly Made Sketch 15

My oh-so-fun run as a guest designer at Freshly Made Sketches is coming to a close, sniff sniff...I have been so honored to be able to join these uber-talented ladies!

Cindy challenged us with a sketch  that made me go ...hmmm....tricky one!  and all this pressure to go out with a bang with my last card!! lol

I was going to try to not do a Christmas card, but the first image that came to my head was the tree from Christmas Lodge. I paired it with DSP from the Frostwood lodge DSP package, and selected a color theme of Whisper White, Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.

Channeling Ann Schach, I added pearls to the tree and as a border on the bottom.  The sentiment is stamped in Cherry Cobbler on vellum, and wrapped around the layer.  Not the "out with a bang" I hoped for, but a pretty card none the less!

Check out the Design Team inspiration and join us for the last Freshly Made Sketch for 2011!  The team will be back in January with more fun and I can't wait to play along!

  1. Hi Lauri,
    Working with you is always a pleasure, thank you for your hard work and lovely creations! Your final card is perfect, I love the velum and the pearls ala Ann are always the right touch! Happy holidays to you and yours!

  2. I am still making Christmas cards - right down to the I am glad to see you are making some as well! This is a lovely tree - and the pearls are a beautiful detail!

  3. Very nice, great classic Christmas colours, and vellum is fantastic. Love all the pearls too, they look wondeful on the tree.

  4. Such a festive Christmas card Lauri! I love that crackled wood-grain background. I'm so glad that we had a chance to work together at FMS, and I'm sure we'll run into each other again!

  5. Lauri, this is gorgeous! I love the background and te sentiment on the vellum. The pearls are a fantastic addition to the tree and the base of the panel.

    It has been so much fun working with you over the last 7 weeks as well. Sad to see it all end but I will continue to follow you and your awesome inspiration!

  6. I love this interpretation of the sketch! The pearls and the vellum are wonderful touches! So glad to have worked with you at FMS and I look forward to more of your stunning creations in the new year! Have a great Christmas!

  7. This is fabulous Laurie ... I so love that row of pearls along the bottom of your card as well as the tiny accents in your tree ... I am also a newly converted fan of the vellum sentiments - this is just great!
