Celebrate Your Big Day!

Hooray!  It’s Wednesday and time for another Freshly Made Sketches challenge!  I’m really sorry, but I don’t have any pictures of my house with huge snow drifts or anything exciting like that.  It’s the same ol’ look as always… green palm trees and flowering shrubs.  Boring, huh?

Our exceptionally talented and wildly creative team member, Kim Singdahlsen, has created a really great sketch to work with.  I already have so many ideas of other ways to use her sketch, but here’s my first go at it…

FMS173-Big-Day-Stamp-SetWhat’s not to love about the Sale-a-Bration stamp set, “Big Day”?   And it’s FREE with a $50 minimum purchase.  That’s a lot to love!  I love the look of this stamp used on the Chalk Board paper with Stampin’ Write Markers (directly on the stamp) and Blendabilities (directly on the card).  A Big Day needs a little sparkle and shine, right?  Easily accommodated with a little gold glitter, a peek of gold foil paper and gold baker’s twine.  🙂  Despite the bits of glitter and sparkle, I think this would be okay for a guy.  What do you think?  I used one of the stamp set sentiments to complete the interior of the card:

FMS173-Big-DayI hope you’ll join us at Freshly Made Sketches, check out the inspiring designs by the ‘Clean Team’, and play along with us this week.  I can’t wait to see if any of you use one of the other ideas that I have for this sketch!

    SO fun! I love the image and it’s so fun on an angled panel. Your bold stripes are fabulous – inside and out! And the twine poof is a great finishing touch.
