Freshly Made #86

Today's card is for Freshly Made and it is freshly made.  I had the idea yesterday but just whipped it up this morning.  Not a good idea.  Whipping up is good for eggs, but a card?  Not so much.  When you try to hurry, too many things can go wrong and if it doesn't come out like you pictured it in your head, there's no time to redo.  The sketch this week is really quite simple.  In fact, I think I'll use it a lot.

I was inspired by a card already entered into the FMS gallery with dry embossing on it.  I knew I had this folder called Baby's Breath and had recently acquired some pink Liquid Pearls in the May kit of the month from Simon Says Stamp.  I thought they'd look lovely together and I'm happy with that portion of the card.  The rest looks a little bare to me, and the color of the sentiment is not what I would like. The stamp is from My Pink Stamper (Pink Stamper stamped in pink  lol) but the color of the ink from Hero Arts is a little bright for the card.  I've heard bloggers say they redo their cards.  I think this one will get a little redo, but as the deadline approaches I'm entering it as is.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

I don't think it looks bare at all. It's so clean and fresh looking! I'm so glad you were able to play with us this week!
