Freshly Made Sketches: Birthday Wishes

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

I wasn't overly creative with this one, but I had just a few scraps of one of my all-time favorite paper pads - so I threw some of the last pieces all into this one sketch!

FMS Birthday Wishes
I've used this flower die with the paper many times. They are totally unrelated to each other, but somehow both companies came out with a three color, blobby looking flower! I did struggle with the sentiment. I love this one, but I'm still just a little unsure whether it's the right look for the paper. I liked it because of the stripes in "you" with the striped paper - and the funkiness of "birthday" with the overall look.  But I think I talked myself into liking it vs. actually liking it.  I know...I overthink things!!
I hope to see you playing along. Be sure to check out the other designers starting on the FMS blog for lots of inspiration!


  1. I'm not a pro like you and all the other bloggers, but I think the sentiment with different fonts looks very suitable with the papers.

  2. Your flower is perfect with that DSP! I love when bits and pieces just come together! Pretty card!

  3. I like the mix of fonts in the sentiment Kim. It's a playful look that goes well with your mix of fun patterns! Pretty card!

  4. That flower die and those papers are a match made in heaven. Great job putting them together! Fab card!

  5. I think the sentiment is spot on. And I love the little banner shape for the sketch. The prints and the flower together are wonderful!!

  6. This is such a beautiful card Kim! I love that paper! The flower is the perfect match! Love the sentiment too!!!

  7. I love that sentiment with your "blobby" flowers. Everything pairs together perfectly!
