Freshly Made Sketch 100! Time to Celebrate!

As a past designer for Freshly Made Sketches, previous designers were offered the chance to participate in their 100th challenge!  How fun...and wow, 100!  For the 100th sketch, the team decided to go back to the very first sketch and celebrate with giveaways and extra inspiration from past designers.

And my take on the sketch...

I was inspired by one of Lyssa's In Love with Color combinations, Bermuda Bay, Melon Mambo, Blushing Bride and Smoky Slate.

  • The background is Core'dinations cardstock in Bermuda Bay that was embossed with the Pretty Print Textured Impressons folder, then sanded to reveal the inner color.
  • The Main image from Blooming with Kindness was stamped with Melon Mambo on Blushing Bride.
  • For the secondary image, I stamped the same flower in Smoky Slate on vellum.
  • The sentiment was stamped in Bermuda Bay on Smoky Slate and punched out with the large oval punch.  Two Bermuda Bay dots access the sentiment.

ETA:  I realized after I posted this that I forgot the three little thingys up in the corner on the sketch!  I added a few Dots and took a picture, but since I am off to work in a few and it is early..not the best pic!

Be sure to stop over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I hear there are giveaways and all sorts of fun samples!  And thank you to the FMS design team for asking me to help celebrate!

Have a great day and thanks for looking!
