Freshly Made Sketches: Bless You

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Jen Brum.


I had been browsing my die stash and realized that I had a die that I had gotten some time ago thinking I would use it regularly - and it has never once been through my Big Shot.  Given that it was round - it was a must-use on my card.

Bless You

I wanted the focus on the die so I found some very subtle striped paper and simply added interest by changing the direction of the stripe. 

Be sure to check out the variety of other inspiration by the Freshly Made Sketches design team - and then head to your craft area - we do love seeing your take on these sketches!

Love the sentiment die you've used and using the striped paper in the 2 directions really adds to the card without detracting from the die. Karen x
