Freshly Made Sketches #291

I found a little crafting time this weekend...but with the storms lighting is lacking to show off the true results.  I swear my pinks really do match and there is a subtle background stamped on my pink cardstock as well.  My card is based on the sketch challenge this week at Freshly Made Sketches-

And there is a new name in the blogland with their first challenge this week at TicTacToe-

I went with heat embossing, white and baker's twine....though I could also do circle, free spot and white!  My card is created with the June Stamp of the Month, S1706 Hello Foxy.

I heat embossed the circle wreath in white and then water colored my image.  With perfect lighting, my wreath is just a slightly lighter pink than my cardstock.  I also did some creative cutting on my stamp set.  While I like the Thankful for You sentiment.....I need more thank you cards...not exactly thankful for you cards.  One great thing about clear stamps, you can cut and shape them to your liking.  While I cut my stamp to say Thank You, it will easily go back together to stamp the original sentiment.  You can also curve your sentiments when placing on your blocks to achieve a different look.
