Freshly Made Sketch cards

Today's cards used both the Freshly Made Sketches design for today and the palette from Color Throwdown challenge 162.

 I used the CTMH equivalents of the colors, which are Breeze (retired), Buttercup, Brown Bag, and Cocoa.

I used this design to create a card for two new parents and their 3 month old baby boy who are my "Baby Grace" buddies. I plan to call, encourage, and pray for them along with sending them cards of encouragement.

I thought this design would also be perfect to highlight the dry embossed design on the "Bird Call" Cuttlebug embossing folder. I lightly sponged the raised portion with Brown Bag ink to highlight the image, but it does give it a shabbier appearance when inked. I needed this to be a "male" thank you card for my friend's husband who baked a birthday cake for me and Trish to share yesterday. He often bakes amazing desserts so the sentiment fits perfectly: "Once again, like so many times before, your generosity astounds."
