Freshly Made Sketches #16

I am so excited to be a part of the Freshly Made Sketches design team for the month of January, what a wonderful way to start 2012. Thank you so much ladies for inviting me to create with you.

This sketch worked wonderfully for a Thank you card for a holiday party my husband and I attended. The picture does not do the card justice, it really does not show the texture  and the colour differences as well as I would have liked.
I stamped the martini glasses with white craft ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder, they were then cut out and popped up with foam tape.

Supplies: Natural white and black cardstock, Designer Paper-Bo Bunny, Hot of the Press-Tiny Words, Inkadinado-Martini Glass, Celebrate it ribbon, misc embossing folders.

Please visit the Freshly Made Sketches blog to take a look at wonderful sample cards that the Design Team members have created.
