Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate

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


Do you ever feel like everybody in your life has a birthday in the same month or two? September is one of my months.  So there was no doubt that this was a birthday card and I immediately knew the circle was going to be a cupcake!!

FMS Cupcake

I had a not-yet-used layering cupcake set in my stash.  I pulled out some paper that I thought might work well for the recipient and then started matching colors.  I didn't totally follow the sketch in that I moved the entire thing to the right.  I didn't do it on purpose, but I stamped the cupcake and picked the papers before I went looking for a die cut word.  I struggle with birthdays because "happy birthday" is a really long sentiment.  The best I could do was "celebrate" and I still had to move it to fit it.

I did mess up my dates so it's quite likely the recipient is going to see the post before she gets her card.  I am truly sorry.  Just know that I had you in mind while I was making it.  Also - check out the photo because the glue smudge that you'll see on the actual card can't be seen on the photo!!

SUPPLY LIST

I don't know where the paper is from, it's just some scraps that I liked.

Yes, but some of the best people were born in September, lol! I thought at first that the cupcake was a die cut, and then I thought, hmmm...how unusual of Kim. Then I kept reading. What an incredible layered stamp!! Your card turned out perfectly, and I'm sure the recipient is going to love it. It's fantastic. Bev
