Freshly Made Sketches #20



Hello blogger friends!  It's the first Friday of February, and here I am today with the first of two sketches that I did.  On Freshly Made, we were to make a long card, something I don't usually make.  I had an idea to use my Mod Tree Border punch that I bought at Archiver's.   I also dusted off my Color Coach and came up with melon mambo, tempting turquoise, and daffodil delight for the cardstock.  I used shades of melon mambo for the inks.



I used the Valentine Defined set to stamp the large tree.  I then cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals.  The sentiment comes from the Something to Celebrate set.  I also made a version with a pear pizzazz DSP border.




I'm not sure which one I like better,  but it was fun making them both!
