Freshly Made Sketches #442

If you have an outdoor enthusiast in your life, the Timber Collection is for you!  Needless to say, I "needed" the whole collection! We are truly in the outdoors in Wyoming. I created my card with the new Timber Cardmaking Collection.  I seriously had to have this collection for the exclusive stamp set that is included!  Here is a look at the complete set-

The set comes with supplies and instructions to create 16 cards, 4 each of 4 designs....but feel free to branch out and create your own!  I used the diamond shaped die to cut out three shapes to go along with the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches-

For my sentiment, I first inked the stamp in New England Ivy ink and then rolled the edges into Ruby ink.  The coordinating die makes the perfect outline!  My card felt a little too plain on a white background, so I dry embossed with the Stitched Circles Embossing folder and added a Stitched Frame in New England Ivy to pull it all together.  The Stitched Frames are on the retiring list and are only available while supplies last! A few clear sequins for bubbles finish off the card.
