Freshly Made Sketches #7

ETA:  I was chosen as a Perfect Princess for this card over at Freshly Made!  Thank you so much!!!!

 

Hey there!  Happy Monday everyone.  I hope you had a great weekend :)  I'm here today with a card I made for Freshly Made Sketches #7.  I was really drawn to the sketch this week, it was a fabulous one!





Funny thing about the sketch is I'm not thrilled with my card.  I seem to be  having a difficult time with the Freshly Made concept and find myself creating clean and simple cards.  I'm hoping to challenge myself more and keep adding detail and embellishments, the Freshly Made way...in future weeks, but for this week, here is my card :)


I still love my card and am really happy with the way it turned out, just not sure it's the Freshly Made way, ya know?  I'm going to keep trying ;)

We had a great time at the birthday party Saturday night and it was so much fun hanging out with old friends.  On Sunday we a nice breakfast, just the two of us, and then picked up the girls.  I spent several hours working on crafty stuff :) :) :) and the rest of the night we relaxed.  I'm hoping for a nice quiet week, but I have a few busy nights here and there.  Going to plug right on through them!

Have an AWESOME Monday friends and I'll see tomorrow!  Thanks for coming by today!!!

  6. Cute card! All of my cards seem to turn out pretty clean and simple too. Hoping to get more detailed but just never seems to happen.

  16. Becky...keep doing what you are doing because this is awesome! It takes a lot of talent to do CAS cards, so be proud that you can pull them off so beautifully. Thanks for playing with us at Freshly Made Sketches again.
