Freshly Made Sketches: Make a Wish

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!
12.1.21 FMS side

Sadly, I missed the square part of this sketch until I was writing this post about an hour before it went live.  I really like square cards - I don't know where my head was!

The sketch is fabulous - I love little trios of accents.  I need a birthday card this week and I stuck with Cécile's stars because they were just right for a birthday celebration.  Then I found this detailed cupcake in my not-yet-used stash. The colors were picked simply to get as far from Christmas colors as possible.  My two sons have birthdays 4 days and 7 days away from Christmas so for their entire lives I've been very careful to differentiate Christmas and birthday.  Well, at least until they got old enough to want expensive electronic gifts then Christmas and birthday merged for the gift giving.

I did add a bit more in the background than the sketch had. This is an office mate that I don't know well but I feel like she would want a few more frills - so I added a scalloped edge and some embossed sprinkles. 

I hope to see you playing along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches.
