Freshly Made Sketches: Happy Day!

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!

At the time I was getting a card ready for this challenge, I also needed a birthday card for my youngest niece who turns 7 on Monday.  This was a situation in which the sketch truly was an inspiration.  I know, I know - challenges are also supposed to inspire - but many times I really have to work to find stamps that fit a sketch.  It's less "inspiration" and more trial-and-error.  In this case, I looked at it and immediately saw the stamps that I would be using.  Clearly that big heart is actually a bunny jumping out of the grass!!

Happy Day

I hope to see you all playing along with this sketch - I am excited to see how many ways the big heart and little heart can be interpreted!


The green is a Wild Wasabi print from an earlier version of the Backgrounds Designer Series Paper Pack. 


  1. This is adorable! That critter makes me smile! And I am definitely happy to see some spring colors - too much "white space" around here these days!

  2. She will LOVE this card!! The image is adorable and i love the butterflies and how you tight the string!!!

  3. Ha! I can totally see that the bunny is jumping up from the grass! Too cute!

  4. You'll melt the heart of your 7 year-old-niece for sure! Boy, is she in for a treat!!
    Ofcourse the big heart is actually a big bunny celebrating your niece's birthday, ha, ha.


  5. This is such a cute card and I especially love the way you tied the twine. Fabulous card!

  6. Perfectly cute, especially for a little girl. And I love how you've used the little butterflies for the element in the top corner -- very clever. She'll love this.

  7. Such a great card Kim! I love that sweet bunny! It will be perfect for your niece! Love the colours!!! I never would have thought to do a bunny for the shape!!!! Shapes frustrate me! You should give me lessons!!!

  8. This is just the cutest card Kim! Love your colour and image choices!

  9. Loving the sweet colours you have combined for this one, Kim. Hugs xxx

  10. Utterly adorable; guaranteed that you niece will love it, as do I! Of course, I noticed those wee butterflies, too...
