Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate

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


I absolutely to make little groupings of stamps or dies.  It adds so much detail and interest yet keeps all of the lovely open space for a fresh, clean and simple card. I intended with this sketch that everybody would use different shapes and layers and stamps/dies - and I am so very much looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with.  Here's mine.

FMS Celebrate

I needed a birthday card for a workmate.  I started out with a plan not to stamp, but to do a die-cut cupcake with balloons and candles behind it, but to my horror, I discovered that the only die-cut cupcake I have is itty-bitty and my balloons are much larger.  The poor little cupcake got lost.  (Do you all recognize my justification for a future purchase of more cupcakes and balloons??!!)  Luckily I have two sets by Dee's Artsy Impressions at Stamplorations that are just full of wonderful basic birthday shapes and I started layering!

I do hope to see you playing along.  It's a little nerve-wracking and very exciting all at the same time to put a sketch out there!  I look forward to being inspired by each of you!

This is such a fun birthday card Kim! I love those little cupcakes, the gift and the confetti! Super cute! Great colouring! I loved your sketch! I think it's good to stretch our creativity, which for me hasn't been too hard since I have been completely lacking!!!
