Freshly Made Sketches #141

Good evening crafty friends! It is almost the weekend! Whoop!
Hope everyone has some crafty time planned! I think I will do a little
along with putting some hangin's on the walls to make this new
house look more like home! I also want to work in the flower bed if
it doesn't rain. This house was empty for quite a while before
we moved in so the outside has been a bit neglected.
Here is a card I made this evening following the current sketch from
Freshly Made Sketches. I am also entering this card into this month's
Verve Diva Dare which calls for a masculine themed card.
I am also entering this card into the current Nautical challenge over at
The Card Concept. For the style part of the challenge, I would consider
the style of this card to be a bit clean and layered. It seems at
first glance that there is a lot going on on this card because of the
different patterns of paper, but it really is quite a simple card.

Enabler's list:

Paper: Carta Bella Ahoy There, CTMH cardstock in White Daisy,
Ruby, and Outdoor Denim
Stamps: Verve Strong Anchor, and Birthday Bash
Ink: CTMH Exclusive Inks in Ruby, Outdoor Denim, and Desert Sand
Misc: Verve Strong Anchor dies, Nestabilities sm and lrg circle dies,
misc twine and button.


  1. What a fantastic masculine card! Those patterned papers work so well together. And I got a laugh out of your "Enabler's List" - that is oh, so true! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Hillary, I really like this card. It is perfectly masculine, the colours are strong and bold and the stamps are fab!

    Awesome card that does fit the clean & layered category perfectly! These are some really sweet DP's! Great call adding the bit of twine to the anchor and the button on the ship's wheel.
