Freshly Made Sketches - 200th

Thursday, August 20, 2015

Hello Friends,
Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating it's 200th Challenge. Lot's of great prices can be won. Take a look at their sketch which is a pretty easy one, but still kind of tricky. It took my once more several tries before I reached the final result of my card. I used white embossing powder from ZING with a background Stamp from Impression Obsession - Cover a card. Then I sponged over some  distress ink - spiced marmalade, ripe persimmon, shabby shutters, tumbled glass and finally mermaid lagoon. I love the bright and shiny colors. I used the same colors for the Birthday Die cut Sentiment. I layered the sentiment 4 times. The border die is from Paper Smooches - Borders 1. And finally some Doodlebug Sprinkles, which I love over all.  

Hope to see you soon again.
Thanks for stopping by. 

xoxo Melanie-Jane
