Freshly Made Sketches: Forever Young

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by me.  Here’s what I did with it!

FMS Forever Young

I usually make a card before I put together the sketch for the rest of the team.  I just want to make sure that the sketch works and I can do something with it. I didn't do that this time but I did flip through my not-yet-used stash and came up with this half circle die - and the sketch was born!

These dies are from Pinkfresh Studio. There are four arched dies with different scenes that fit into a tag.  Obviously I didn't use the tag, but the dies are an easy way to make a fun shaker!

I hope to see you play along!

Stamps: Mama Elephant Birthday Messages
Dies: Pinkfresh Studio Teardrop Tag with Fillable Elements, Taylored Expressions Mini Simple Strips die, MFT Blueprints 24 and 24 (the edges)
Paper: Sunny Studio Dots & Stripes Pastels (the polka dots and stripes), Doodlebug Design Dot-Grid-Daisy-Stripe Rainbow Petite Prints (the flowers), Stampin' Up Granny Apple Green, Papertrey Ink Bright Buttercup
Other: Webster's Pages Party Time sequins
