Thanks Bunches with Freshly Made Sketches

Good morning dear readers.  I had a chance to play for a minute this weekend, between all my other commitments.  I wish I could have an entire weekend to lock myself in my studio.  I am not sure when that will happen again.  Life is just so busy. I took inspiration from a sketch and a few challenges I saw over on Paper Playful such an awesome resource!  Thank you to all the volunteers who compile the info.

So for this sketch I pulled some of my 6x6 paper pads and as I often like to do, created a feminine and masculine version of the sketch.  I saw several embossing challenges this week and decided on a couple of embossing folders as a twist.

I should have thought out my sentiment color a little better on the masculine version.  I inked the "thanks" but it still doesn't pop like I wanted.  IRL is looks fine though.

Here's the sketch from Freshly made sketches:

Impression Obsession Everyday Top Edges (Thanks bunches)
Tim Holtz/Sizzix embossing folder (butterflies)
purple papers from K & Co recycled paper pad
Quick Quotes Violet Powderpuff chalking ink
The Paper Studio embossing folder (arrows)
brown card papers The Paper Loft 6x6 Hooked on Fishing
Quick Quotes Mocha Moma Powderpuff chalking ink

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:


  1. Great set of cards! Love the embossed butterfly and all the purple! Love the papers and the embossed background on the other cards as well! Nicely done! Thanks for joining us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. I love your mix of textures and patterns on both of these! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
