Best New Thoughts — FMS190

Another Wednesday has arrived, and that means it’s time for a new challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches.  And this week, I have the pleasure of being the hostess.  I can’t wait to see what y’all do with the sketch!

I put an oval in the sketch, but feel free to use any shape you like.  The design team used all sorts of different things — love their creativity!  I had intended to use an oval on my card, but you know how sometimes one thing leads to another, and before you know it, you’ve ended up with something totally different than what you had originally planned.

Best New ThoughtsI just got my box of new catalog goodies, so I was dying to try some out.  I started with a strip of dsp from Everyday Chic, which has lots of fun black and white patterns.  I then stamped the gorgeous flower from the hostess set, Best Thoughts, and colored it with an aquapainter using Watermelon Wonder (I can’t stop using this color!) and Cucumber Crush.

The sentiment is a die from the new Thinlets set called Greetings.  I love these dies!

I added a peek of Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Trim and some baker’s twine.  And I ended up with a pretty simple card.

Best New Thoughts Close UpWe hope you’ll play along and make your own card using the sketch.  You can jump on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team made for some inspiration.  They rocked this sketch!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
