Freshly Made Sketches - I am so Thankful... Card

It has been SO long since I entered a sketch challenge and I have really missed it! Freshly Made Sketches is one of my favourites, too! I love their basic sketches because there is so much that can be done with a sketch like that. 

Here is my take on this week's sketch. I turned around the "flag" and chose to use ribbon to create that effect instead. I also clustered my embellishments just above the ribbon rather than adding mine on the top left side of the card - just to be a little bit different... I used only cardstock - no patterned paper this time around. Foam tape and background stamping added some interest instead of adding patterned paper. The sketch can be found just below my card. 

Products used are all Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted: 

Paper: White Daisy Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock
Stamps: Harvest Happiness, A Little Thanks (ret.)
Inks: Black, Lagoon
Accessories: Artiste Cartridge, Damask Embossing Folder, Paradise Paper Flowers (ret.), Licorice Opaques (ret.), White Satin Ribbon (not CTMH), Foam Tape, White Crocheted Flower (ret.)



  1. Beautiful card, Alyson.... I love the crocheted flower center you used on the large flower and the colors are so pretty :)
