Freshly Made Sketches #84


 Linda has created a super cute sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  The moment I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for the Close To My Heart May promotions-Dream Pop and the May Stamp of the Month, Pinwheel!  I love the bright cheerful colors, which are sure to brighten someone's day!  Here is the original sketch for you to play along-

I inked my pinwheel stamps in VersaMark ink and then embossed in white powder.  I applied them to my card with pop dots for added dimension.


I left the inside blank, adding a strip of pattern paper to dress it up for a future sentiment or notecard.



All supplies by Close to My Heart, except where noted:
S1305 Pinwheel (May Stamp of the Month, only $5 with qualifying purchase!)
CC1024 Dream Pop Paper Packet (May promo-only $10 with qualifying purchase!)
Z2503 Basic Pigment Ink
Z891 VersaMark Ink
Z821 Clear Embossing Powder
Z673 White Daisy Embossing Powder
Pink Brad-Making Memories
Fishtail Dies-MFT
Copic Sketch Marker

I have entered my card in the following challenges:
Love to Create-Punches/Dies
Paper Playtime-Emboss
The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge-Embossing
Whoopsi Daisy-Spots & Stripes

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope to see your take on the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!

This card should be made into a poster for every floor of every hospital everywhere, from the NICU all the way to the MOLDIE, I mean GOLDEN OLDIES wards! NO ONE could be down in the dumps after looking at it. Fantastic, Allisa!!

(BTW, I thought of you as I used a burlap bow tie on a card last Monday!!)
