Freshly Made #25


I so love playing with Freshly Made Sketches and I nearly missed this one.  I decided to try my hand at paper folding today, and made this flower on the card. Got the idea from Pinterest which links you here.  I want to give credit where credit is due! For my first attempt, it’s not so bad I guess.  I decided one of my goals is to put more detail into my cards and not be so predictable.  My sister always says that when she shops with me she knows what I am going to pick up before I do. She almost makes a game out of it to see if she is right.  LOL  My cards have become that same way too. Predictable!  Wish me luck to be more ‘surprising” so to speak.

This card is pretty easy to follow and I don’t think you need a ” recipe” so the only thing I would like to add is that when I was finished with the flower I added the dots on both shades of green paper to match the purple.  It helped a lot…I think!  OOPSSSS i just realized my ribbon is not exactly correct…..darn!  My photo is not as bright as normal…we got some much needed rain today and I had to take the photo inside.

Have a great week….I am on Spring Break now…yahooooo!
