Freshly Made Sketches #512

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #512!

Clean Team designer Kim Singdahlsen has given us the sweetest sketch this week! I pulled out the smaller  Memory Box Star of Wonder die to use for the tree element and thought about what I wanted to do with the horizontal lines for a few days. 

I have a bowl on my desk that holds little stars left over from other projects and realized there was enough gold shimmer bits to create an anchoring line for the big star.  I'd already watercolored the splash of purpley blue sky to back the big star so ran a light touch of color to add a couple horizontal lines. Once the panel was dry, the PTI December Typed Words sentiment is split between the top two lines and the metallic gold star popped up last.

The Clean Team has amazing cards this week. Check them out at Freshly Made Sketches and play along with us!
