FMS challenge #300, Giving Thanks for you card


Freshly Made Sketches is on their 300th challenge this week, how great is that?  I love playing along with them, and the team cards are always fantastic. Check it out HERE.
And here is this weeks sketch:
To start with my embossing was done with a new folder in the new Holiday catalog.   As a demo, I'm in preorder month this month, but you will be able to purchase from this catalog in Sept 2017. You are going to LOVE IT! The SU catalogs keep getting better and better.
So my embossing folder on the is from a set called Quilted Christmas, what a fun set this is. And it is a set that will take you all year long, which makes it a super buy.

My colors today are Rich Razzleberry, Sweet Sugarplum, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White.
I stamped my flower on vellum using my archive black, then colored on the back side and cut around it.  I placed it over a white doily, layered over the 2 papers that make up the sketch.   The ribbon I used is one of our incolors, Sweet sugarplum, but is retired with new ones taking it's place.

The two dsp pieces are cut from my Petal garden stack. and the sentiment is on the Label me Pretty punch.  I then added in a few metallic sequins.

Such great texture on your card from the embossed background, the doily, and the ribbon. And the flowers are so beautiful. Thanks for joining our 300th sketch celebration at Freshly Made Sketches!
