Freshly Made Sketches with Chantilly 4 u

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my blog!  I am back from a long weekend of Festivals and Weddings.  I am jumping right back into the saddle by linking up last minute with Freshly Made Sketch #98.

Here is the sketch...

I had everything out and ready to go already for this one, just had to look up the sketch.  I love that I don't always clean up really well in between projects because you just don't know when you might use a paper piece ore embellishment that didn't make the cut for the last one!  ;)

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment in Pear Pigment Ink from the Adventure Pigment Ink set.  Then I sprinkled it with a bit of clear embossing powder and hit it with my heating tool.  This gave me a nice smear-proof image to color in with my Buttercup Alcohol Ink Marker

The Framework Alphabet My Acrylix allowed me to match my sentiment, and add a bit to it as well!  I love this new set!  I used Outdoor Denim Dye ink for these letters since I was not going to color them.

I also took a strip of the lightest green glitter paper and trimmed it with the brand new Scallop Border Punch.  It lays nicely next to a strip of Babycakes B&T Duo.  It just matches beautifully with the Chantilly Paper, doesn't it?  I love mixing up new and older patterns.  These are BOTH available now!  ;)

That just about rounds it out, so I am off to start a busy last week before school starts!  I register my SENIOR tomorrow!  Yikes...wish me luck!
