FMS152 – Give Thanks

By | September 7, 2014

Good morning, hope you are having a great weekend.  Not sure about where you live, but the weather  here sure has changed.  Friday it was in the upper 80’s, sunny and humid.  After work Friday,  decided not to run my errands, but spend some time in the pool, never know when pool time will end!  Saturday started sunny and humid, but by mid-afternoon there was a “cool” breeze and I needed a light blanket over my legs to sit out on the porch.  No long pants just yet, I’m not a long pants and closed in shoes kinda girl!  My husband starts his fall softball league today and I’m sure they all love the change in the weather

Thought I would participate in the Freshly Made Sketches 152 challenge this week, with a clean and simple designed card.  Once you take a look at the sketch below you will understand why clean and simple.  Remember to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see wonderful creations by their design team and other crafter like me.

FMS Final 152-001


Here is the card I designed.  Card base is Cajun Craze with a top fold. Horizontal layer is For All Things Designer Paper matted on a piece of Soft Suede.  Used stamps from the For All Things stamp set for the focal image, layering two. Tied a little bow from Gold Bakers twine to place on top of the stamped bow. Gotta love sequins, noticed a tiny imperfection, little bit of liquid glue and sequins and no one would know!

    The weather has turned here too and made me starting thinking of fall and the colors that go with them, so its especially nice to see them on your beautiful card! I love the watercolor splash behind the wheat. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!
