Big Day Birthday — FMS136

Whew!  It’s another Wednesday already!  I think the month of May is always a whirlwind, even more so than December.  With all of the end of school activities, it just seems like there is always something going on.

I get the pleasure of being this week’s hostess over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Here’s the sketch:

I needed a birthday card, so I pulled out the Birthday Basics dsp that I have left.  I also used the Chalk Talk stamp set and coordinating framelits.

Big Day BirthdayI also pulled out my sewing machine and added some crazy stitching around the main panel.  Some extra thread was looped under the focal image for fun.

Big Day Birthday close upWe hope you’ll be able to play along and post your creation in the Freshly Made Sketches gallery.  I’d love to see what you do with the sketch.  Meanwhile, you should go check out what the rest of the design team made.  They always inspire me!

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Amy I looooove this sketch! And love what you’ve done with it, too. Someday I’ll have to try sewing on a card. It adds so much interest. It’s just so much of a pain to haul out the sewing machine, which is why I have a large pile of unmended clothes. If my family catches me sewing a card and not their ripped jeans, I’ll have a revolution on my hands, LOL!

  2. I love this sketch, Amy – it’s one of my favorites and I’m going to keep it to use again! Your card is fabulous – I’m so impressed with your stitching and the thread behind the central image is a great embellishment.

  3. LOL – the crazy stitching is awesome! That and the bit of thread add some great details to your already great card! I love this sketch and I can’t wait to see how the gallery lights up with your design!

  4. Great card Amy! I love that stitching! It’s fabulous! I never think to loop the extra thread behind something – looks amazing! Thanks for the great sketch this week!
