Happy for Freshly Made Sketches

I hope you’re all having a happy day!  It’s time for another fabulous sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and today’s sketch comes from the very clever and creative Jen Mitchell.  I loved using this sketch.  I haven’t designed a card so quickly and easily in a long time!



Does this card make you feel happy like it does for me?  This is the first time I’ve used my Hello You Thinlit Dies, and I am in love with them!  I double stacked two slightly offset cutouts, So Saffron and Basic Black, to create a shadow effect and more dimension, and then added a thin layer of Crystal Effects to give it an enameled look.


The Stacked With Love DSP and Lovely Amazing You stamp set work well together for the theme of this card, and the card from my Everyday Adventure Project Life Card Collection inspired the color palette and made this so quick and easy to create.

I hope you’ll join us at Freshly Made Sketches this week and show us how Jen’s sketch inspired you!
