Freshly Made Sketches: Birthday Celebration

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



I love this sketch - it's right up my alley.  I love little groupings whether it be dies or stamps. It adds lots of detail, but leaves lots of fresh white space. Today I went for stamps. A long-time friend (for almost 40 years) had a birthday yesterday and I have the perfect stamp sets for creating this little grouping!

FMS Birthday Celebration

These stamps are Dee's Artsy Impressions found at Stamplorations.  I have adored Deepti's work forever - found at her blog Dee's Art Utopia - and was thrilled when she started her own line of stamps.  These stamps are from two different sets - Balloons and Banners and Party Mates. It's so nice to have a basic birthday image building set because it's perfect for creating these little groupings.

Thanks to Karren for this fun sketch!  Hope to see you playing along.

Cupcakes, balloons, streamers...such a sweet celebration and marvelous take on the sketch! (Not sure if anyone else is experiencing this but it appears the 'capcha' and prove you're not a robot issues have reappeared on your blog. I'm not sure how to change/eliminate this...)
