Freshly Made Sketches #84

 Linda has created a super cute sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  The moment I saw the sketch, I knew it would be perfect for the Close To My Heart May promotions-Dream Pop and the May Stamp of the Month, Pinwheel!  I love the bright cheerful colors, which are sure to brighten someone’s day!  Here is the original sketch for you to play along-

I inked my pinwheel stamps in VersaMark ink and then embossed in white powder.  I applied them to my card with pop dots for added dimension.

I left the inside blank, adding a strip of pattern paper to dress it up for a future sentiment or notecard.

All supplies by Close to My Heart, except where noted:

S1305 Pinwheel (May Stamp of the Month, only $5 with qualifying purchase!)

CC1024 Dream Pop Paper Packet (May promo-only $10 with qualifying purchase!)

Z821 Clear Embossing Powder
