I absolutely to make little groupings of stamps or dies. It adds so much detail and interest yet keeps all of the lovely open space for a fresh, clean and simple card. I intended with this sketch that everybody would use different shapes and layers and stamps/dies - and I am so very much looking forward to seeing what everybody comes up with. Here's mine.

Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate
It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by...ME!!
I needed a birthday card for a workmate. I started out with a plan not to stamp, but to do a die-cut cupcake with balloons and candles behind it, but to my horror, I discovered that the only die-cut cupcake I have is itty-bitty and my balloons are much larger. The poor little cupcake got lost. (Do you all recognize my justification for a future purchase of more cupcakes and balloons??!!) Luckily I have two sets by Dee's Artsy Impressions at Stamplorations that are just full of wonderful basic birthday shapes and I started layering!
I do hope to see you playing along. It's a little nerve-wracking and very exciting all at the same time to put a sketch out there! I look forward to being inspired by each of you!
