Freshly Made Sketches #492

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #492!

Cécile Ribon is the Queen of creating graceful, elegant designs and this talent shows in her sketch this week! I went searching for a die that replicated the gentle curve of the flower and found what I was looking for in a Memory Box Bamboo Shoots die I had cut while on a long ago crafting date with a friend. 

The die cut was bigger than I wanted for this design, so a few careful snips freed the right section and left me with a great piece to use another day. The MFT Greetings and Salutations sentiment is stamped first and then the Darice Thin Lines embossing folder used to add a bit of texture and interest.

I hope you check out the amazing Clean Team designs and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!
