Celebrating FMS300!

Freshly Made skteches is celebrating their 300th challenge!  WOW!  That’s a lot of card inspiration!

As always, the sketch is clean, as should be the cards.  Sometimes too much white space bothers me, so this time I used the Swirly embossing folder for the card background and used the debossed side.  I smeared something very faintly on the embossed side, turned the mat over and found that the debossed side was cleaner and worked much better for this card.

I used the floral DSP from A Whole Lot of Lovely, dies from Swirly Scribbles, Crushed Curry cardstock, Soft Suede paper and ink,  Whisper White bakers twine, and finished with 3 enamel dots.  The dots came in to play because the card felt so unbalanced and heavy to the right side, and they really finish the card.

Here’s my card:


Here’s the FMS300 challenge sketch:

Have a Peachy day!

Color Throwdown, #454

#CTD is a weekly color challenge which requires uploads to be just in the colors they post plus neutrals as needed.  #CTD454 is for green, light kraft, and white, and that’s all I used.  For the green I used Emerald Envy, the light kraft Crumb Cake matted on Soft Suede, and then Whisper White.  The printed DSP is retired, but the Emerald Envy, including the ribbon, is a current In Color.  I wasn’t sold on the plain base, so I ran it through my Big Shot with the Spots embossing folder thinking it would go with the polka dot pattern on the DSP.

Here’s my card:

CTD # 454

Maybe it’s the Irish in me, but this green is gorgeous!!
