Freshly Made Sketches #39

I am squeaking under the wire again for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, most of my day has been filled with chores and such but I have sneaked into my craft space to
get a card done. The card is last minute too,  for Father’s Day for my husband.

This sketch was perfect for what I had in mind for the card. I heat embossed the focal image with black ink and clear embossing power, two layers give it a nice 2D look. I could not resist added some twine, a silver button and a couple of silver stickers dots.

Supplies: Natural white cardstock, Designer Paper- Momenta, Close to my Heart – Born to Ride, misc button, twine and embellishments.
