Freshly Made #24

With my scraps of Basic Grey still on hand, I sat down to create another card to add to my set of four, making a set of six from the same product.  This time I used Freshly Made Sketches as my inspiration.

The sketch . . .

And my design . . .

I went outside of my comfort zone on the stamping, as I typically do not mix stamps.  For this design I used three stamps, but the real stretch for me was the lighter background butterfly, which I really love. 

Always a good idea to step outside the comfort zone, as it brings great inspiration for other projects down the road.  And inspiration is a great thing!

Happy paper crafting!

(Supplies used:  Cardstock: Basic Grey; Pattern Paper: Basic Grey; Ribbon: American Crafts; Stamps: Unity January KOTM; Ink: Close to my Heart; Jewels: KaiserCraft
