Neat & Tangled debut; Freshly Made, part III

 
  On Friday I began playing along with the one year anniversary challenge at Freshly Made Sketches:  Choose any Freshly Made sketch from the past year. One lucky gal will be chosen as the "Queen of Clean."  I took it literally and began using what was in my immediate workspace to make a card AND clean my table of bits, bobs, and scraps.  My table is not exactly pristine, but I now have table space...time to look to the piles on my floor...

  The first thing I saw is my recently purchased Neat & Tangled stamp sets, but they have not come out to play.  I noticed that Neat & Tangled is sponsoring the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays:

Create a clean and simple project that is black and white plus one color of your choice

Using my Neat & Tangled "Fresh Blooms" stamp set, and scraps of Echo Park's Country Drive "Bee's Knees" paper, glossy accents, a black snap from Making Memories, and this sweet sketch:
another card emerged from my paper scraps!

Happy Sunday!
