Freshly Made Sketches: Celebrate Me & You

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

I'm feeling lucky...I had been playing around with these dies/stamps on another card and never quite got it together.  Then before I cleaned off my desk, I took a peek at the sketch - and knew right away those same dies/stamps would work!

FMS Celebrate Me & You

I love the fun of the angled panel.  I decided the main panel was perfect for the "celebrate" with the angled panel making it fun for an anniversary.  The soft bokeh seemed like a good fit too!  (The card was simple, but the photography gave me fits.  I hate glittery stuff.  I see others photo it and it looks great, but for me, it does weird things to the focus and the color.)

I hope to see you playing along with us!

  1. I love it when cards come together like that! This die and stamp were perfect for the sketch. And I have the same photography issue with shiny things, especially gold/silver foil paper.

  2. Fantastic take on this sketch, Kim!!! Thanks for the inspiration :) And I'm with you on the photographing glittery things---still trying to figure out how to make that work.

  3. Oh such fun when everything falls into place! Pretty card!

  4. Wonderful take on the sketch Kim, love the sparkle!

  5. Brilliant take on the sketch, Kim! I veered away because I only saw 'panel'...didn't even cross my mind to use sentiments! And that, my friend, is why your creativity is so incredibly inspiring...

  6. Sparkle is the WORST for pictures. I can never get it to show how pretty it is. Love this card. Your sketch take is fabulous!!

  7. These elements worked perfectly for the sketch! Fabulous card!

  8. Oh, what a great take on the sketch! And I totally hear you on photographing glittery stuff. I don't think I'll ever master that skill!

  9. So pretty and so clean! Your bling sentiment is just awesome!
