You’re Priceless for FMS322

Today I am playing along with the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches. All my cards this week feature stamp sets from the Annual Catalog. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the fun new product, we forget about the rest. Remember though, you can earn Sale-A-Bration items with purchases from any of our current catalogs, Clearance Rack items, as well as Holiday Carryover product. So much to choose from!

Here is my card:

Freshly Made Sketches 322 | FSM322 | Sketch Challenge

I am planning on giving this card to my daughter this week. She is a (very good) competitive softball player but decided she wanted to try out for the 8th grade baseball team this year. Initially the request she sent to the school came back with a negative response. They were not going to let her play. Over this past weekend my husband helped her do some research and together they drafted a very thorough response citing the relevant points of Title 9 which would require the school district to let her play. On Tuesday she was called to the office and received the positive response she was waiting for. Yes, they would allow her to play baseball!

The images and sentiments in the You’re Priceless stamp set are perfect for this situation. My daughter is so excited, but I’m sure quite nervous for tryouts as well. The “you’re brilliant” on the front of the card is a bit of a congratulations for her fighting for what she wanted. The “Shine Bright Like a Diamond” is to remind her that she is very good and her talent will shine through. There is also a little play-on-words going on here because a baseball field is called a baseball diamond. She will appreciate that!

This was a very quick (by my standards) card to make. There is no die-cutting or punching or embossing. Just stamps, ink and paper! I pulled the colors for the diamond stamps from the Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper: Lemon Lime Twist, Emerald Envy and Night of Navy. Since this is a photopolymer set the three different filler stamps for the diamond were easy to line up. I can’t wait to go back and experiment with different colors!

I used a piece of Night of Navy cardstock behind the main panel to add more dimension to the card. This also gives the card a heavier, more professional feel to it. Yes our cards are homemade, but we don’t want them to be wimpy!

I hope you enjoyed my card today, and be sure to head over the the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out all the projects by the designers as well as the other entries into the challenge.
