Freshly Made Sketches 200

Friday, August 21, 2015

Hello, Hello!
One of my favorite challenges Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating their 200th post with many fabulous sponsors! So of course I am playing;-)

You should check out their site to see all the samples that the DTs from FMS and the sponsors made, fabulous! 
And here is my take...

The sketch is very simple, that means it's all up to you!
I wasn't sure if I wanted to go crazy with lots of layers and embellishments, but decided on simple and elegant for this big celebration! ;-)

I hadn't played with my Winnie & Walter goodies for a while, and since they're one of the sponsors, my card #1 (Yes, I want to play at least one more!) for this challenge is with everything W&W! 
I stamped the pretty flower and some leaves on vellum with versamark then heat embossed with the enchanted gold emboss powder for a delicate look. Then die cut them and another flower in Blushing Bride. So pretty, isn't it!? :-)

That pretty 1/4" border was made with the Essentials: Audrey Cutaways. 
The Cheers die is just perfect for this occasion ;-) I die cut in Patterned Vellum, it's fun but was a bit hard to see on my white background. So I stamped some chevrons with woodgrain in Blushing Bride on my base. 

Those teeny tiny hearts are from the border I die cut. They were too cute to just throw away so I was saving them, and I am glad I did! *wink* Aren't they just so dainty and cute!? *LOVE*

My notes...

Stamp: The Big, The Bold, and Extra, V for Chevron (Winnie & Walter)
