Hi and welcome to Freshly Made Sketch Challenge day! This week, our hostess is the sweet and talented Amy. She makes the most wonderful cards and uses the coolest color combos!
For my card, I used a Close to my Heart set which is a bit tongue-in-cheek. As you can see I flipped the sketch so the lady wasn't looking off into nowhere.
The retro, 1950's look really appealed to me. I stamped the 50's housewife in Strawberry Slush and then clear embossed it a couple of times. The two colored panels are dry embossed with the Needlepoint embossing folder, because of course a 50's woman would be a SAHM, stitching away during the day :) My lady is popped up on dimensionals. The colors in the photo look like Really Rust and Crushed Curry, but they are actually Strawberry Slush and Daffodil Delight.
I used the colors from this week's Fab Friday challenge for my card today.
Thanks for visiting. If you haven't checked out the rest of the design team's creations, be sure to pop over and visit the FMS blog.
