Freshly Made Sketches: It's Your Birthday

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


I took some liberties with Cecilé's sketch.  It was absolutely perfect for the balloon scene that I wanted to create - but since it's for a 10 year old, I needed a few extra splashes of color.

FMS It's Your Birthday

Honestly, I really wanted to go totally cutesy for this card, but I will be giving it to my niece at exactly the same time that her big sister will be getting this card for her 13th birthday.  It seemed safer to make sure the cards were fairly equivalent - some shine, some sequins, a few balloons - but this niece likes pink and blue so I added plenty of pink and a splash of blue.

I hope to see you playing along!

I've got a granddaughter who will turn 10 next week....where does the time go???!! She is going to love this card! It's beyond "little" girl, and has moved into a perfect "double digit" kind of age. LOVE those numbers, and the colors you've used here. Your niece has great taste in colors! Darling card, Kim. Love this one, and your take on this sketch. hugs. Bev

This is sweet and fun! I love the scalloped frame and the gold 10. That added personalization will make it even more special.

What an adorable card for a 10th birthday. Like the way that you framed your gold 10 and balloon heart.

Super fun card and a wonderful take on the sketch! The scalloped frame around the center elements ties everything together beautifully. Perfect for a 10-year old!
