Uniko Studio and Freshly Made Sketches

I missed the deadline for Beverley's challenge on the Uniko Studio blog, but here is the card I created with her free downloadable patterned paper.

I used this week's Freshly Made Sketch.

I pulled out some Coredinations to match the blue in the patterned paper. The sentiment panel was made up with an Inverted Scalloped Circle Spellbinders die. I snipped off the points to make it appear more cog-like, going with the embossed (and sanded) background.

The sentiment is Paper Smooches and after stamping it in red, I very lightly/roughly stamped it multiple times in a light blue-gray ink.

Thanks for peeking!

The sentiment panel does look like a cog Dana, it's wonderful. Love the embossing and sanding of the background too. This is a fantastic "guys card". Thanks for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.

Great job with the sketch! I especially like how sanding the embossed paper really makes the design pop. Thanks for sharing with us at Freshly Made Sketches!
