Just a Note and a brand new card Challenge. Freshly Made Sketches is a new challenge and I am pretty excited that I can that I can participate right from the start.

Please see the Challenge details on the challenge blog.. here. This is the sketch for today's challenge.

I am pretty proud of the fact that I used one sheet of designer paper for the whole card. I thought I might try to mix and match from one of my 6 x6 packs but found this in my stash and it all came together. I do love double-sided paper.

I cut out a couple of the flowers from the paper and made it three layers, the last one has some Diamond Glaze to give some gloss, the button is embossed with clear embossing powder. 

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Upsydaisy Designs, Sizzlits-buttons, misc floss, Kaisercraft pearls.
