Freshly Made Sketches #46

It has been wonderful to be so active in my craft room this past week, it seems like my momentum just disappeared through the spring.

I hope to visit and join in some of my favorite challenges this weekend, I am excited to have a long weekend to play with my supplies. 

Isn't this paper adorable, it called for inked edges and a little distressing but I help back and tried for a relatively clean card.... I have lots of scraps though .... :).

I was determined to use this spellbinders die, but to do what I wanted I needed to flip the sketch. I layered the background, top strip and focal piece. I stamped the image and sentiment before adding gems, I finished with an embellishment and twine.

Supplies: Cream and brown cardstock, Designer Paper-Basic Grey, Stacey Stamps - Solid Wildflowers, Hot off the Press - Tiny Words, Recollection gems,  twine, Spellbinders, misc punches
