Hi everyone!!!

Joining in the fun over at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog, today!!!
This is the sketch for the week:

and the card I've made:

The vertical strip at the side I've done with scorelines and I also have scorelines on the small white square. These photos show the scorelines a bit better.

The colours I've worked with are navy and copper - not gold and black as it looks like in the photos!!!!
The flower and hello dies are from MFT.
Leaves stamps from PTI.
Completed the picture with some rhinestones.

Thank you so much for popping in.  Your visits and comments are always appreciated!!!

Have a wonderful Friday!!!

Petra, such a handsome, striking navy-and-copper combination; perfect for those lovely elements you've paired! WOW! And extra WOW to see you crafting for a second day! Hoping for a third...fourth...fifth!

Hello stranger! Not sure if you haven't been posting or if my computer isn't playing nice with your computer (posts not coming through)...again!

Anyway, here I am! We are into the fall season - trees have dropped most of their leaves - which translates to some craft room time! Finally!

Adore this card! The subtle scored lines lines add HUGE impact to your stunning CAS design! BTW, the colors look true on my monitor - definitely navy and copper are what I see :)

Freshly made amazingness!!! Oh your embossed stripes is such a creative way to depict the sketch Petra... The colors are also so well suited.. Do you have seasons in South Africa? Here in the USA we are in Autumn and the colors are beautiful. Your card reminds me of fall and I just love it.. Plus your mountain view is so pretty it just adds a nice to your card!!

Blue and copper--my new favorite color combination. Love how you mave mixed these together--and love your textured stripes.

I love the copper and the navy Petra. The large flower is really pretty and the scored lines across the background are an elegant touch together with the sequins and sentiment to finish. x
