Freshly Made Sketches #34 {Happy Birthday}


Wednesday is here and that means another sketch from Freshly Made Sketches! Thank you to everyone who has applied to our design team call, we are blown away by the response.  I am the hostess this week and I went for a fairly simple layout, please feel free to use any shapes. The colours I used were inspired by the Play Date Cafe Colours and then I decided to add some yellow designer paper from Summer Smooches paper to the card, and I am happy with the colours, what do you think?



I wanted to make an extra special card for my educational assistant, it is her birthday today!  I inked up the Triple Treat Flower again! I think I have used this stamp ALL week! I used the sentiment from Perfectly Penned, I love this pretty greeting set! My designer paper comes from the Summer Smooches again and also the Designer Pack in Subtles. I added the flagged ribbon to the side of my flower once again, using the White Organza Ribbon.

{Supplies Used}
Stamps: Triple Treat Flower, Perfectly Penned
Papers: Pretty in Pink DSP, White, Regal Rose, Baja Breeze and Summer Smooches
Inks: Basic Gray, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Baja Breeze
Extras: 5 Petal Flower Punch, Fancy Flower Punch, Small Circle Punch (1/8"), Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Pearls, Dimensionals, White Organza Ribbon

We hope that you will join Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Please be sure to visit the other DT Members to see their wonderful creations!
