Freshly Made Sketches: Make a Wish

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and guess what?  I got to create it!!


The team has had great fun with this one - not just in making cards - but in arguing over whether the graphic is straight.  The sketch looks crooked to us - it clearly looks lower on the right side as compared to the title.  But we've all had rulers out measuring it on the computer screen and it is straight.  There's something about those angled panels in the middle that give the optical illusion that the card is crooked.  It's an odd one!  

This card that I made that inspired this sketch is here, but I made a new one for today.

Make a Wish

I liked the idea of some party papers and cheerful colors thinking that the angled panel would make it extra fun!

I hope you have fun with this one!
