Freshly Made Sketches: Caring Daisies

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


I put together this sketch with a long strip specifically for all the straight, simple sentiments that are coming out - then lots of open space for your imagination.  I add the circle (or any shape or stamp) to suggest that you keep it all to one side.  I love slightly off-kilter cards.

There is nothing unique or new about this card - but I so love the pop of fresh white and yellow daisies on a kraft background.  I think I do the same combination every single year when spring starts to appear!

FMS Always Care

I started out with the daisies and my intent was to do a bank of daisies (thus the reason I did a circle on my sketch).  But right next to the daisy dies in my binder was the die with the stem/leaves and I realized a bit of bright spring green would be a great addition.  I added a bit of texture to fill up the background, a few sparkly sequins and a sweet sentiment - done!!

I hope to see you playing along!  I am in awe of the creativity on display in our players' gallery each week!

KIM! *waving wildly* Remember me? Time to catch up on your fabulous gallery; I've been away far too long (although all cards have been seen and swooned over). A lovely trio of sunny daisies that really pop against the embossed kraft background. Hoping we'll see some blooms around here soon; winter seems to be hanging on tightly...
