Freshly Made Sketches 211

I always want to play the Freshly Made Sketches challenge and it often gets away from me.  This week I am sliding in, but I do have a card made.  Here is Karren's sketch:


Her narrative indicates that the flower shape and the leaves are guidelines only.  I think my wheelbarrow and apples satisfy that guideline. This image is from Clearly Besotted  and is called Giving Thanks.  Images were stamped with versafine and colored with Zig clean color pens.  I created masks for the image and the circle negative.  The background of the circle is sponged distress ink in Broken China.   My sentiment is produced on my laptop as I had nothing that fit! The card  looked a bit plain(yes I have white-space issues), so I literally tossed a few sequins around the circle, loved the places they ended up and glued them down.

I am sending this to a friend I have lost a bit of touch with this summer, and so will be entering it to Jennifer McGuire's Share Handmade Kindness challenge for family and friends this week.

Thanks for stopping by!
