Freshly Made Sketches: The God of Hope

Welcome back!  After an extended holiday break, Freshly Made Sketches is back with a new sketch!  This week's sketch is brought to us by Rita.


I love crafting in the fall and in the Christmas season. I love the themes of those seasons - gratitude, hope and joy - plus the colors of those seasons are my absolute favorite color schemes.  Gratitude, hope and joy are perfect themes throughout the year, but I do like a change from the color schemes.  I pulled out spring berries and I used corals and fresh greens.  (But I kept the hope and joy!)

FMS God of Hope

I noticed in the sketch that the panel goes slightly off the edge; I love that look so I did the same with my berries.  I trimmed the main panel to be only 4" wide so that even with the bit that's off the edge, it will still fit in a standard envelope.

I hope to see you playing along with us for the first sketch of 2018!!

I did not notice that the small horizontal layer hung over the edge of the card until you mentioned it! I think I need to pay better attention to those sketches! Your card is so beautiful. I love the colors you've chosen and I love how you always use white space to draw the eye to the sentiment and focal point of your cards. Your cards are so bright and cheerful!
