Freshly Made Sketches #613

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #613!

Clean Team designer Kim Singdahlsen's fabulous sketch was a perfect opportunity to use a couple items picked up on a recent shopping trip with a couple crafty friends. I so miss the days of having several scrapbook and stamping stores within an easy drive and took full advantage of opportunity to see, touch and smell so many favorite products in real life before buying.

An older Poppystamps Holiday Mistletoe die, tied with sheer ribbon and finished with pearl berries, sits so prettily on the new Spellbinders Tufted 3D embossed panel. When I see a simple strip in a sketch, I poke through the patterned paper and washi stash. The new Teresa Collins washi was the perfect size and color to provide a sentiment and finish the design. It is wrapped all the way around the card front, providing a sentiment inside the card, too.

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

Happy Thanksgivings to our American friends and safe travels if you are on the road this week!
