Freshly Made Sketches #47


Jen has a great sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I am head over heels for the new Dakota paper line by Close To My Heart.  The pack has not even made it to the paper shelf!  The wood grain is by far my favorite....but the other sheets complement it so well!  Here is the original sketch-


All of my shapes were cut and matted with the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I love the contrast of the black matting.  I hand tied the black twine to mimic barb wire. 


All supplies by Close To My Heart:
Z1790 Cricut Artiste Collection
D1525 Casual Expressions Stamps
G1047 Dakota WOTG Kit
X5930 Slate Cardstock
1388 Colonial White Cardstock
Z2105 Black Ink
Z2104 Barn Red Ink


I have entered my card in the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion -Anything Goes
Love to Create - Punches and Dies 
Polka Doodles – Banners & Bunting

Thanks for stopping by, hope to see your take on the sketch at FMS.  Be sure and stop by and view the great creations by the DT!

Oh I love this card - it's so rich looking - even with it's country sort of papers. You've done a fabulous job inside and out.
