Fireworks & Love — FMS316

It’s time for another sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches, and this week the ever kind and fabulous Jennifer Timko is our hostess.  Take a look at this fun sketch that she has for us:

My husband and I just celebrated our 22nd anniversary last week and I used the sketch to make him a card to mark the occasion.  When I saw the sketch, I thought some dsp would work great for the large panel.  Flipping through my stash, I thought this sheet of specialty dsp with silver foil images reminded me of fireworks and celebrations.

I die-cut the sentiment from the Sunshine Wishes dies collection out of silver glimmer paper, and placed it on a piece of Night of Navy card stock.

I tried adding different embellishments, but kept eliminating them as I thought it really looked best without them and I wanted to keep the card more masculine.  I know it has glitter, but hey, it goes with the fireworks theme, right?

I found this sentiment in the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, and thought it was perfect for the occasion and works with the fireworks theme.  I embossed some little silver hearts from an old Paper Pumpkin stamp to add a little interest, and ran a piece of silver foil washi tape along the bottom.

We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch.  We love seeing what you make as we browse the gallery each week.  Meanwhile, be sure to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has whipped up for your inspiration.

Enjoy your Wednesday!  Thanks for stopping by!
