Freshly Made Sketches #101

Happy Holiday Weekend --
I trust everyone is enjoying an extra day off, and with any luck, a little extra time with family. My house has quieted down for a few moments so I'm here to quickly share a card I made last week for the Freshly Made Sketch.

I pulled out some paper's left from my bargain find of My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline collection. I've decided I love the wood panel paper with the white doilies. (When I first bought the package, I wasn't all that impressed with this piece.)
And, I love how the other colors, used in my banners, work with the wood. It keeps the rustic feel while giving it some color yet.
I die cut the word bubble and stamped it in (PTI) Chartruese ink using my stamp set from the (CTMH) Sarita kit. The butterfly is stamped in gray ink on gray cardstock and trimmed before attaching. It was from the (CTMH) It's Your Day stamp set. I added the Studio Calico silver sequins to spruce it up, but think the color keeps it rustic and not too "fussy".  :)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
