Cheer Up, Buttercup for Freshly Made Sketches

 I'm madly trying to use up my DSP before it all retires.  June 4th will be the last day you can order any of the gorgeous Designer Series Paper from the 2013/14 Annual Catalogue.  If there's some you missed out on, now's the time to get your orders in!  I got into my Kaleidoscope DSP yesterday and decided to create something for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #137:

This simple sketch, by Jen Mitchell, is based on rectangles and has lots of room for the creative muse to do her thing!  Here's my take on it:

  •  I received the Geometrical Stamp Set for free at Leadership this year, but haven't used it a whole lot.  Time to get it out again!  It coordinates so perfectly with the Kaleidoscope Design Series Paper!
  • My colour scheme follows the DSP colours, with a base and flag of Bermuda Bay, the sentiment in Melon Mambo and the little triangle in Crushed Curry.  This is such a striking colour combination that it catches your eye right away.
  • I'm so glad that the Designer Buttons will still be around in the new catalogue, because they so often add that balancing element to a design.  This one is tied with some Whisper White Baker's Twine in a pert little bow that adds more playfulness to this already cheery card.

Don't forget about the bargains you can get for some of the stamps and accessories on the Retired List! Here are the links where you can check out the bargains!
