You Want Fries With That?

Hi and welcome!  It's time for another challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and this week I have the privilege of being hostess.  I've chosen a bit of an unusual sketch but hopefully it gives lots of room for creativity.


For my card, I watercolored some images from a new-to-me set by Paper Smooches called Think Fast.  This is such a fun set and having two teenage boys in the family, I'm sure it's going to get some use :)  I struggled a bit to get a good red color with the watercolors, so I have pinkish tomatoes and fry box.  The sentiment comes from Sentiment Sampler and the font style matches the images perfectly.  I popped the main panel up on foam tape as is the bun.  The patterned papers are adhered directly to the card base.




Here's a close up of the images.

The gingham puts me in mind of a picnic and a hamburger plus fries are what I want to eat at that picnic! What a terrific card!
