Freshly Made Sketches #386

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this great sketch designed by Jennifer Brum. As often happens, once an idea has taken hold, I find it hard to shake so melded the circular element with the angled panel to create a large speech bubble.

To make the speech bubble lines closer to the lines of the sketch, the MFT Speech Bubble border is cut across a white panel first and then angled just along the right edge to make a second partial cut. The Lawn Fawn Chit Chat greetings are stamped on the speech bubble before it is embossed with dots. I wanted the dots to be subtle on this panel, so ran the finished panel through the die cut machine to press them down a bit.

The Concord & 9th Say Hello sentiment is heat embossed on the aqua panel before it is also embossed and the card assembled.

I am linking this card to Seize the Birthday #164 Texture.

The Clean Team has fabulous cards this week - I hope you will play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
