Grateful Heart — FMS452

It’s Wednesday, and that means it’s time for a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week it is my turn to be the hostess, which means it is my turn to provide the sketch.  Here’s what I came up with:

When I made the sketch, I thought it would be perfect to showcase some pretty Fall leaves or some pretty flowers, or whatever focal images you’d like to feature.  I went with the leaves, and inked up those from Loyal Leaves for the first time.

We had a big road trip to Michigan last week to move my daughter into her college apartment.  It is such a long drive (1,111 miles away)!  My parents came down to stay with our youngest who is in high school while my husband and I made the trip.  I wanted to make a card for them to thank them for coming down here from Kansas.

I love the detail on these pretty leaves!  I cut them out with my paper snips and placed then on the Mint Macaron card base.  The sentiment is from the Beautiful Autumn stamp set and was cut out with a die from the Detailed Bands dies collection.

I sponged a little bit of Mint Macaron ink on the sentiment piece before stamping the sentiment with Early Espresso ink.

I hope you’ll play along with the challenge this week!  I’d love to see what you create with the sketch.  Looking through the gallery will be so much fun this week!  Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
