FMS #175


 




Here is a card for this weeks sketch challenge at Freshly made sketches.
I'm not great at bows - I made a couple to add to the ribbon at the top but they never look as neat as they should so I ended up leaving it off completely.
Having stayed very neutral with the colours I wanted to make sure it was interesting visually. I started off using the dies for PTI's Mum's the word set to emboss the card front and then stamping the images inside the embossed lines.
I stamped a polka dot border at the top and added the congratulations sentment from PTI's new Swoosh die set.
I finally added a few dots with Rangers black enamel accents.
