Fern Wishes — FMS180

It’s time for another sketch challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. And this week the super talented Jennifer Timko is our hostess. Here is what she has for us:

This sketch had me stumped for a while.  In fact, this is my third card with this sketch. The other two ended up in the wastebasket.  But it’s good to have a challenge once in a while.

I immediately thought of using a doily for the semi-circle, but had no clue what to do with the rest of the card.  I have barely used my Butterfly Basics stamp set, so I decided to get it out and play with it.

Fern WishesI stamped the fern with Calypso Coral ink and embossed the sentiment with Pool Party embossing powder.  I added a little washi tape and a strip of dsp.

Fern Wishes Close UpThe design team didn’t appear to have any difficulties with this sketch, so you should go by the Freshly Made Sketches site and see what they’ve made this week.  And then we hope you’ll make your own card and share it in the gallery with us.  We love to see what you make!

Have a great Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

Purple Birthday Flowers

Birthday LilliesPurple is the one color I fear when it comes to card making.  I don’t know why because I like purple when other people use it.  It is rare for me to use it, but when I do it is usually in moderation and I have to make a conscious effort to use it.  When I saw this pretty stamp and decided to color it with my Blendabilities, I decided it was time to use Rich Razzleberry, which is my favorite Stampin’ Up purple by far.

Birthday Lillies Close UpI like how this turned out.  I need to use purple more I think as it wasn’t really that hard this time!

Enjoy your Saturday!  Thanks for stopping by!
