Thank you for stopping by ... it is sketch challenge week again at Freshly Made Sketches and I am so delighted with the fantastic response we had last week ... what a fabulous array of inspiration there was, so thank you for your support and your creativity!
This week our hostess is the lovely Rita Wright and she has a great sketch, which I love and I am sure you will too, cos it has the potential for so many possibilities - check it out:
And this is my card that I have created for my nephew's birthday:
So, upon completion of this card and having wrapped the gift (yep, left it to the last minute, had no gift wrapping paper so had to use what I had .... Kraft ...gah!!!)
Anyway with a bit of twine and a tag, this is what I got:
But now the card looks to white, too bright and .... not boyish ....
So, I replaced the white base for a Kraft base:
Much better ... and the final picture:
Oh, just thought I'd show you a close up of that star:
A new little 3d star I learnt at Jennifer McGuire's - Holiday Card Boot Camp. It doesn't get squished either cos it has a small pile of dimensionals underneath, and glossy accents on the feet ... brilliant!
Have a great week everyone and I hope you can get some time to play with us at Freshly Made Sketches .... pop on by and check out the inspiration from the fabulous Design Team!
