Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown








For my card, I combined this week's Freshly Made Sketches #78 and Color Throwdown #234.
I used SU Crumb Cake, Basic Black, Garden Green, Real Red and Whisper White CS.  I made the flower following Selma's tutortial here. My flower looks like a full rose instead of the carnation.  I didn't have the Cheery Lynn Flower dies so I used the SB Rose Creations dies.  It only has 5 leaves so I cut several flowers and cut the leaves apart and used them as Selma did.  I used the 3 middle sizes for my flower made from Real Red CS. I added a MS pearl to the center, and cut the leaves from Garden Green CS also using SB Rose Creations dies.  The Garden Green border is cut with SU Adorning Accents Edgelits. The center white panel is embossed with SU Lacey Brocade EF.  The sentiment is from SU Itty Bitty Banners. I cut it out by hand and matted it on Basic Black CS, aslo cut by hand.  I finished the card with some Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon.  It doesn't show up very well in the photo, but I also added some scored lines to the top and bottom white CS.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.  I appreciate your comments.
