Freshly Made Sketches: A Cheerful Hello

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Cécile and here’s what I did with it!

FMS Cheerful Hello

This card was another happy accident.  First, I had all the colors still out my desk from last week's FMS card - colors that made me really happy to work with!  Then, I was flipping through my stamp index (the backgrounds and accents folder...yes, I'm obsessively organized) and I saw this old WPlus9 set that had variable height elements just like the sketch.  And finally, I had recently purchased this fabulous alphabet and die set from The Stamp Market and each rectangle was exactly the same width as the columns of triangles.

Cécile always gives us the most creative sketches.  I might scratch my head for a minute when I first see them, but I always adore the unique look of my card when I'm done. I think the Freshly Made Sketches design team outdid themselves with this one - be sure to check it out. Then I hope you play along with us this week!
