Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate

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


Recently, I realized that my sentiment collection was a little dated.  I love all the cards right now that are all about the sentiment.  A big bold sentiment with just a hint of embellishment - or a splash of watercolor.  So I set out to update my collection.  Here's one I picked out with a big word die and coordinating stamps - and it's perfectly sized for the sketch.

I'm not sure the stars were necessary on this card, but when I got the sentiment, I threw that die in my cart too so had to pair them up.  Plus any celebration needs some sparkly stars!

I hope to see you playing along this week.  There's the perfect center panel for images or sentiments or dies or anything else that works!!

Fabulous card! I love this die and have used it plus the same sentiment on a card that'll post on Saturday! Great minds... :)

I think the stars are a great addition to this card! What's a celebration without a few sparkly stars to liven things up!

Yep, I agree, the stars belong right where they are! This is one of the best birthday cards I've seen. Clean, fresh, fun and cheerful... who could ask for more? I think your choice of colors and DSPs are really what make this card 'above and beyond'.
