Freshly Made Sketches: More Candles

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

As often is the case, Freshly Made Sketches came to my rescue.  I needed a last minute masculine birthday card. I had a set of candle dies and sentiment on my craft desk that I hadn't put away from a few weeks ago, but I didn't have the time to think beyond that.  I glanced at the upcoming sketch and happily it all worked. In about 10 minutes, I went from panicking that I needed a card to having it made and even photographed!

FMS More Candles

I delivered the card to a work mate, then about 1/2 an hour later his wonderful family showed up with birthday donuts for all of us! It was a happy day!

I hope to see you playing along this week.  I love our gallery - I am always inspired by the variety of amazing creations! 


Stamps: Reverse Confetti Birthday Wishes
Dies: Reverse Confetti Candles, MFT Fishtail
Cardstock: Taylored Expressions Toffee, Oreo, Lime Zest, Cookie Monster, Plum Punch, Lemon Meringue

  1. Candles are perfect for a masculine birthday card! I love the bright, happy colors paired with the neutrals. Fun card, Kim!

  2. Don’t you love when a speedy card just works perfectly? Love the bright pops of color with the neutral! Great birthday card!

  3. A 10-minute card! I can only wish. If I create a 1-hour card, I'm doing well! Glad the sketch came to the rescue and helped you create this fabulous masculine card.

  4. What a fun card - and I also wish I could do a card in that amount of time. It's usually hours, because I change my mind so many times!

  5. This is such a great card Kim! I love those candles! The colours look perfect with the neutral cardstock! So pretty!

  6. I always marvel that when I am most nervous about creating a particular sketch I spy something on my desk that fits the bill perfectly! I love your colorful candles. This is a fantastic take on the sketch!
