I have been playing along with the Freshly Made Sketch crowd for a couple of weeks now. I’m trying to learn more about their card making style because I like the clean lines. Of course, what type of card I make on any given day depends on my mood so you just never know what you will get here in my world of craft.
Anyway, here is my card for Sketch #40:

I used my new Spellbinders Cut Fold Tuck to make the medallion behind the little flowers. A Recollections flourish is tucked behind the focal panel which is made up of two Classic Ovals (Spellbinders) and stamped with Stamper’s Best  Dress Form Floral Corsage Rubber Stamp.

Papers are Lost and Found – Sunshine and the ribbon and lace are from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

I chose to leave off the sentiment since this is going in my box of OWH cards. That way it can be used by one of our heroes for any occasion. 
FMS Sketch #40

I also made this card for:
Mynnette’s Spread the L-O-V-E challenge:

*Operation Write Home: Supporting our nation's armed forces by sending blank handmade greeting cards to write home on, as well as cards of gratitude to encourage them.
