Freshly Made Sketches 28

The other day while I was looking through my stamp sets, I came across Pocket Silhouettes and realized that it been ages since I used that set.  So when this week's Freshly Made Sketch came around I decided to use it for my card.



I dug into my stash and used some Kiwi Kiss cardstock and a bit of DSP from Walk in the Park.   First I had stamped the image in Kiwi Kiss and thought the overall colors were a little blah so I stamped over that with some Baja Breeze.  Then I added the fabulous Basic Gray corduroy buttons.  I stamped a "thank you" sentiment from Thank You Kindly but now that I've had some time to think about it I wish I had used a birthday sentiment instead because these colors and Lesley's fabulous sketch are perfect for a man-card and I don't have nearly enough of those!

The Freshly Made Sketches design team has made some fabulous cards this week so make sure you stop on by and check them out.  I know you will be inspired to join us with your own creation!

You've made me want to get mine out Jen! I love the way you've chosen a paper that echoes the shape of the grasses.

GORGEOUS - I love how you can make such a beautiful card without many layers (I struggle with this). Your use pocket silhouettes is genius - I might have to find mine.
