Leafy Hello

And here we are on Freshly Made Sketch Challenge Day!  This week we have the privilege of having Jen Mitchell as our hostess.  Jen, who is smart and funny, also makes the most fabulous cards!

Her sketch this week is open to all sorts of interpretation as you can see by the design team cards.

I took a fairly liberal approach with my card this week and also chose my color combo from the Color Coach - Soft Suede, Old Olive and Crushed Curry.

I used a die cut from Simon Says Stamp for the bottom panel and a Paper Smooches die cut for the top panel.  The 'hello' is triple stacked and painted with Wink of Stella.  I stamped a leaf stamp from PTI's Harvest Berries set to add some more interest.  A few black sequins finished off the card.

You can go in many directions with this sketch - so give it a go!  We'd love to see your card in the gallery.

Thanks for visiting.

LOL As I was looking at your card I was just staring at that vine wondering how you cut that out! I see it's a die. Whew! It's such a great take on the sketch. I love the cheery yellow hello!
