Freshly Made Sketches #541

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #541!

The fun sketch this week is from the talented Jen Brum and had me immediately thinking of ways to use the horizontal panel to add a splash of color or pattern to my design. It was accidental that I went with a rainbow stripe after a couple attempts at using a rainbow in the center panel failed.

I love the precision stripes I can get using The Stamp Market Quick Strip 1/4" dies. The rainbow colors were adhered to a black scrap panel slightly smaller than the width of the white panel and then cut with the same rectangle die to get a perfect fit.

Butterflies were cut from scraps using the Memory Box Butterfly Wings die, adhered in the same rainbow order as the stripes and topped with Pretty Pink Posh gems. A heat embossed sentiment from MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes finished the design.

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