Freshly Made Happiness


It’s Wednesday, and time to do another sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week I’m hosting the challenge with my very first sketch.  I hope you like it!



I think the ‘star’ of this card is the Designer Series Paper!

  • I chose my colors for this card with coordinating colors from the Floral District DSP:  Lucky Limeade, Rich Razzleberry and Daffodil Delight.
  • I created dimension by popping the main panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals, and also by creating a dimensional bird from Betsy’s Blossoms Stamp Set.
  • I added texture with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder on the left panel



  • To add emphasis to the sentiment, which is from the Pursuit of Happiness Stamp Set, I colored the stamp with Lucky Limeade and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Markers
  • To incorporate some yellow from the DSP, I added a bow tied with Daffodil Delight 1/4″ Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon



  • The ‘thank you’ sentiment is from the Just Believe Stamp Set, and was stamped with VersaMark and heat embossed with White Embossing Powder



And here’s the ‘Freshly Made’ sketch that I created:

I hope you’ll visit Freshly Made Sketches to see what the Design Team has created to inspire you, and I’d be honored if you’d make a card based on my sketch and play along this week!
