Poppin' By

Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketches.  This is our last challenge of the year and will be open for two weeks.  Linda - hilariously funny and super-talented Linda - is our hostess today and she has a sketch that you will find yourself using over and over again.

I used a new-to-me set from a new-to-me company and my card was heavily inspired by one made by my fellow FMS teamie, Cindy Lovell.  In fact, it was this card of Cindy's that got me ordering this set straight away.  I tried to not copy Cindy slavishly but you can definitely see where I was influenced :)  Thanks, Cindy!

I started with a white card base and over that I adhered a panel of Soft Stone cardstock cut with SugarPea's Zig Zag Stitched Rectangles dies.  I then die-cut a smaller white panel for the center.  

Then I got to playing with the various stamps and dies in the Date Night set.  I colored up the popcorn image using Copics and just played with the arrangement until I was happy with it.  The sentiment is white-embossed onto black cardstock.

I finished off with a few sparkling clear sequins.

Thanks for visiting.  Please check out the rest of the design team and I hope you can take some time over the holiday break to have a play with the sketch.

This card is amazing! The stacking/layering and use of space couldn't be better, and the smidgen of color in the popcorn and bucket are perfect with the remainder being crisp with black and white. This is a perfect card in every way!!!!
