Freshly Made Sketches: All the Pieces

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and it's my week to bring you the sketch!!  I'm not sure I could have gone much simpler.

I did have an ulterior motive for this one - I knew exactly what I was going to do before I ever created the sketch!!

These Nordic dies were sitting on my desk and seemed to layer perfectly.  Obviously I wanted the sketch to be more broad - so I drew the rectangle and circle, then used a flower and a bird!!
The sentiment isn't the right fit from a design perspective.  It needs to be a bit bolder so that it holds its own with the dies.  But it is the right fit for the person who will be receiving this card. I know it's a little small to read...

Eventually all the pieces will fall into place.
Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment & know that 
       everything happens for a reason.

I am very much looking forward to seeing what each of you does with this sketch.  What shapes will you be using???

Stamps: Papertrey Ink A Little Inspiration
Dies: Spellbinders Nordic Floral, MFT Blueprints 13
Cardstock: Taylored Expressions Gumball


  1. This is so serene and pretty, Kim! I had to laugh that you knew what you were going to do before you made the sketch because I often think that same thing and then when the sketch actually comes up I have absolutely no recollection of what that was. Great sketch!

  2. I am in love with his card! My favorite shade of blue with white.....perfect! And oh those them.....and it all led to a great sketch!

  3. What a lovely card, Kim. I do think the verse you stamped is just the right font and size. If you had used something bolder, I think it would have wound up competing with the die cuts (IMHO.)

  4. This is amazing!! I LOVE the blue and that way you used the die cuts on this. Stunning!

  5. This is such a gorgeous card Kim! I just love those diecuts! They're so beautiful! The white looks so elegant against the blue - very Wedgewood!!!

  6. These colors work perfectly with your Nordic themed card, Kim! So striking and such a wonderful sketch you gave us.
