Freshly Made Sketches #24

 I'm excited to be participating in the Freshly Made Sketches (#24) challenge for the first time!  I decided to use a combination of two different challenges tonight to help me get ready for an Easter Card workshop this weekend and this is what I came up with.  The colors are from the Pals Paper Arts challenge (Always Artichoke, Lucky Limeade and one other of my choice - Daffodil Delight). I chose yellow because it just seems to represent spring and re-birth to me.    I'm curious to hear what you think of this color combination too.  Leave me a comment if you wish - I love reading them! 

Supplies (all products from Stampin UP!):  Cardstock - base is Always Artichoke, first layer is Lucky Limeade and image is stamped with Always Artichoke ink on the Daffodil Delight cardstock.  Patterned paper is from the designer series stack of Regals in Always Artichoke, Ribbon - Always Artichoke seam binding, Brad - In-color brads (2011 - 2013 colors), Stamps - He is Risen (sentiment) and  Just Believe (flowers). I used the Elegant Lines textured embossing folder for the pattern on the Lucky Limeade layer. 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful Easter Card. Love your choice of colors, stamp sets and texturizing. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. Lovely! What pretty colors and I'm in love with that sentiment. Glad you could join us this week at Freshly Made Sketches and hope to see you again soon!

  3. I think Daffodil Delight is a great complement to Always Artichoke and Lucky Limeade. And I really like how you embossed the Lucky Limeade layer. It make for some interesting texture! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches! I hope you'll be back!

  5. Such a great card, Danielle! I've been trying to figure out which non-Easter sets might work for that holiday and Just Believe is a great idea. I'm so glad you played along with us and hope you'll be by again. :) Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
