Freshly Made Sketches #366 – Sketch by Cécile

Freshly Made Sketches #366 and a Design Team Call - Sketch by Cécile

This week at Freshly Made Sketches, we are working with a sketch featuring multiple stripes and a central image.  The new Skinny Stripes die from Ellen is perfect for this challenge.  I inlaid the open stripes with gold foil.  A simple ornament, die cut from hot pink Mirracard, formed my central image.  The ornament was embellished with a single snowflake sequin topped with a crystal rhinestone.  The sentiment is stamped and embossed; it comes from Simon’s new Tiny Words.  I am going to truly this sentiment set.

Supplies:  Poppystamps String Ornament, Essentials by Ellen Skinny Stripes, Simon Says Stamp Tiny Words Christmas, Versafine Clair, Hero Arts embossing powder, My Favorite Things gold foil paper, Marco’s Paper pink Mirracard, Hero Arts snowflake sequins, rhinestones (stash)

On a separate note, I am submitting this card to the DT Call.  I just checked my front page, and noted that I have entered FMS 93 times, today makes 94.  To be honest, I have never been the ‘Queen of Clean’.  A couple times, I have been a ‘Princess’.  I originally joined FMS and Cas(e) this Sketch in 2016 to challenge myself.  I always felt sketch and color challenges were the hardest.  I am no longer intimidated by sketches but color challenges can still throw me for a loop!

My motivation in asking to be considered for the DT is that I absolutely loved being one of the 2018 GDs for The Paper Players.  The experience was wonderful!  I loved the team and the camaraderie, loved being challenged to have new card ready each week, and loved the opportunity to see lots of creative entries and ‘talk’ with cardmakers world wide. I can only ask to be considered.  Being a DT member on FMS would be a privilege. 

Thanks, Elizabeth
