Freshly Made Sketches: A Purple Birthday

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


I have a work friend with a birthday tomorrow.  She is passionate about purple!  So I had no choice but to combine some purple papers and a glittery balloon!

FMS Purple Birthday

When I got done, I felt the balloon was too high - or maybe the whole design was too high.  I tried to compensate with some heavier sequins to the bottom to draw the eye down, but I don't think it was overly successful.  Oh well - sometimes I just need to get over myself, don't I??!!

I hope to see you playing along!

The black sentiment banner is fabulous against all the purple! Fun card for a birthday!

She is going to jump for joy when she sees this!! What a pretty purple it is and the black really is a great pop against it.

Black and purple are such a striking color combo! This card is gorgeous and the balloon looks fine - but I know what you mean when you feel something is not in the right position!

Not too high in my world, Kim. It looks just fine, and I'm sure your coworker will love it. One of our daughters is a purple person, too. Purses, shoes, front door, clothes... It suits her, though! Love the sequins, the sparkly balloon, and the black sentiment panel rather much. Sweet card. Bev

That purple is beautiful, and that is not something I find myself saying very often. :) Your friend will love this card, and she will think everything is positioned perfectly, as the rest of us do as well.
