Hooray! It’s time for a new challenge at Freshly Make Sketches. Our host this week is Cindy Lovell, and not only does she have a fabulous new sketch for us, but wait until you see the card she designed using the sketch! Be sure to check out Cindy’s and all of the amazing Design Team cards.
My card is quite simple, using the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set and a print from the English Garden DSP collection. I purposely made this card gender neutral, as well as mail-friendly. I also used a stamp from the Perpetual Birthday Calendar stamp set – the cluster of stars in the upper right corner.
Although the birthday cake image can simply be stamped as-is, I stepped it up a bit by coloring a little with an Aqua Painter and coordinating inks, added a tiny bit of gold glitter on the flames of the candles, and made the cake plate look like white porcelain by adding some Crystal Effects.
I hope you’ll come play along with us this week! Now, for some exciting news of what’s coming very soon…
Mark your calendar and don’t miss the fun and the prizes!
