Freshly Made Happy Birthday

Like most of you, I’m frantically getting both home and food ready for Thanksgiving, so this post is going to be fairly quick and easy, like today’s card for Freshly Made Sketches.  Our lovely Jen Brum has given us this really clean lined sketch to work with, and because Jen is so sweet, I felt really compelled to make a sweet card. FMS164-BirthdayIt was time to slip in a birthday card, and with the wide center panel, the Photopolymer stamp set, Countless Sayings 2, worked perfectly.  The “Happy” was heat embossed in white, fussy-cut and popped with dimensionals.   A sweet color combination of Crisp Cantaloupe, Pistachio Pudding and Whisper White, for the DSP was carried throughout the card. FMS164 A few randomly placed 2013-2015 In Color Sequins in Pistachio Pudding match the print from the Lullaby DSP collection and a Champagne Glitter heart adorns the Whisper White ribbon. FMS164 Jen BI hope you have a long Thanksgiving weekend and have time to play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week! But, most importantly, Happy Thanksgiving!
