Freshly Made Sketches: Light the Candles

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


In the midst of all of the holiday colors and festivities - I needed a birthday card.  My brother just had a big birthday.  No comments on which one because as he is my younger brother, I would prefer not to think too hard about how old he is.

FMS Light the Candles

I hope to see you playing along!!

SUPPLY LIST

The patterned paper is the Lawn Fawn Fall Plaid 6x6 stack.  The cardstocks are colors from a variety of companies that matched the plaid.

I used the Postage Stamp Stacklet and cut a side off for the border.

This sentiment made me laugh! Love the background (especially for a masculine card) and I love the bit of sponging around the flame. Cute card, Kim!

I'd need a card like this, given how old I am! Bet your brother adored it, as do I! The brick embossing folder is sooooo stylish!
