Freshly Made Sketches: Get Better Quick

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and it is my third week as their August guest designer!!


I have been working really hard at not being tied exactly to a sketch. For instance, in today's sketch, those flowers could be stars, they could be popsicles, they could be trees or many other creative ideas!  But my card for today is pretty much exact.  I just got a new Stampin' Up set called Fabulous Four with four big sentiments that I knew would work perfectly in all of that open space.  I'm also in the middle of a major stamp reorganization.  My stamps are now being sorted by company, instead of theme.  The only part of this that is giving me a little headache are my Stampin' Up singles.  Flowers used to be in the flower section, sentiments with sentiments, etc.  So I am having to dig through my stuff and find all of my Stampin' Up singles.  This big Five-Way Flower was literally sitting on my desk waiting to be reorganized.  I took this as a sign and, of course, I had to follow the sketch exactly.

Sorry You're Sick

Be sure to head over to Freshly Made Sketches and check out the rest of the design team's work.  Then I am looking forward to seeing what you do with this sketch!

Hello Honey - such a pretty card! You are making me think I need to pull that color out more! The big flower is wonderful! And when you are done organizing head on east - I have a job for you!

So glad you heeded that sign; the resulting card is gorgeous, with the lovely layered flower, the pretty panel and the stunning colour combination. Guaranteed to lift spirits; it certainly has done so with mine, on this cool, rainy, windy day!

Love all the Stampin Up goodies! Especially I love the pattern you created behind the flowers. By the way, I thought you used dies for the flowers. Scalloped circle punches? Awesome! I miss those time that I wanted to have every punch in the world. May
