Wednesdays brings a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week our hostess is our dear New Zealander friend, Karren Johnson. Take a look at what she has for us:
I struggled with this one for quite a while because I don’t have any circles large enough. I tried to be creative – using a plate to trace around and cut by hand. While I do love fussy cutting, circles are not my friend to cut with scissors. I definitely need a die or punch for circles. So I decided to take some creative liberties with the sketch and make do with what I have.
One of my favorite sets in the new catalog is the Bike Ride set, which has coordinating framelits as well. I love how you can decorate this cute bicycle with all sorts of fun accessories.
I started with a piece of dsp from the Petal Garden dsp stack, using a color scheme of Old Olive, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight and Berry Burst, with some touches of Basic Gray and Crumb Cake thrown in too.
The sentiment is from the Colorful Seasons stamp set.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card with the sketch. We love to see what you create! Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration.
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

What a beautiful and light hearted card Amy, love it!
I think you’ve overcome your issues with the sketch beautifully, Amy! This is such a trendy looking card – fresh colors, gorgeous images and that cute little butterfly is the perfect finishing touch.
I love this card Amy! Your take on the sketch is so creative. I love that bicycle! Your colour combination is perfect as always! Such a sweet, happy card!
Total sweetness! Love how you stretched the sketch and the bicylce works perfectly! Pretty colors!
Love what you did with the sketch! Yep, that bicycle set is pretty awesome! 🙂
Despite any struggle you had your card is GORGEOUS – so fresh and lovely.
Would an exacto knife around the edge of a flat circular object have worked for you? Sometimes scissors, with a larger rounded shape for sure would be a bit wobbly. I hope you get gifted a circlular die cut set… LOL!
Who needs circles when you’ve got a great angled layer like this! Love this fun card. Bicycles always make me think of summer and that makes me smile!
