As the Annual Catalogue nears its year close I like to go through my designer series paper collection and use the ones that I will probably not use again. . . I never demo retired items because as luck has it everyone falls in love with the things they can no longer have lol.
So my need to clean out the designer series papers and Freshly Made Sketches happened to coincide this weekend. This is Freshly Made Sketches #131:
I used the Melon Mambo gingham page of the Gingham Garden DSP on a Whisper White cardstock base. I have framed the whole project on a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock because I needed a border to contain the gingham design and felt that the Whisper White was not enough. The horizontal piece of Melon Mambo has been stamped with the trio of flowers from Betsy's Blossoms in VersaMark ink so that it is subtle ~ it looks a bit like a shimmery watermark. This is mounted on a piece of Whisper White so that it doesn't blend in with the background.
Finally I stuck three Rhinestone Jewels on the ballerina's crown and stamped the sentiment from Express Yourself which is an exclusive hostess set. Clean and relatively simple.
Kids love bright colours and I have managed to use a little more DSP before the cattie year ends.
