Freshly Made Sketches: Sketch #200

Happy Saturday!! I hope you are all enjoying your day off.

Today I am sharing two cards with you. First is a card I created was inspired by the sketch #200 from the Freshly Made Sketches blog. It is the blogs 200th celebration!!!

When I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to crack open the "Rolling Cloud Dies" from Taylored Expressions that I just received, as well as the rainbow die I had in my stash from My Favorite Things. I used white card stock for the clouds and scraps for the rainbow.

I adhered the die cuts over a white card base that I had blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on to make a "sky." I then stamped a sentiment by Paper Trey Ink in blue.

My last step was to give the card a little sparkle by adhering clear sequins randomly around the card.

I really like how this came out and have enough pieces of rainbow left over to make another rainbow card. I will have to mix up the colors but I think that would be okay.

Here is the sketch that I used for the card:

In other news, I wanted to share a few photos from the fun wedding I went to last weekend. A lot of my photos did not come out that well because of bad lighting so forgive me.

This is me and my husband Chris. I cannot believe I am actually posting this because as a rule, I hate photos of myself. I am really trying to be better about it, though.

This one is my brother, Chuck, and his wife, Marlene. They don't live near us so it was really nice to see them!!

My sister Jen, Chuck and I. I have another sister that did not attend the wedding. Who looks the oldest here?

I thank you for stopping by today. Enjoy your weekend!!
