Freshly Made Sketches #15-{Thanks}

 
This week at Freshly Made Sketches, Cindy Hall is our hostess and she has come up with a fabulous sketch for us this week!  I decided to flip the sketch and make a long card, with the panels being on the long side, rather than the short side.


I used an old SU! set that I had wanted for a LONG time!  I missed it when it came out and retired but a good friend recently gave it to me.  I was over the moon when she did that! Thanks Jane!  I loved the colours over at Create with Connie and Mary and I also wanted to play along with the Scrapbook Essentials Challenge to use Wet or Dry Embossing.  The red panel is embossed with the Finial Press Embossing Folder from SU!
