The days are flying by, and it’s already time for another new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches. Our hostess this week is our friend from the Rocky Mountains state of Colorado, Kim Singdahlsen. Take a look at the fun sketch she has for us:
I needed to make a quick birthday card — like in less than 20 minutes quick. I thought that giant circle could be filled with some dsp, and the Picture Perfect Party dsp stack seemed like a great choice. I had planned on adding a thin strip of cardstock under the sentiment to more closely follow the sketch, but I felt like it covered too much of the candles. So I just used a die-cut sentiment from the Celebrate You Thinlits dies, which enables one to see more of what’s underneath.
There’s not a bit of stamping on this card. The dsp does all of the work.
The card base is note card sized — 3-1/2″ x 5″. I tried toying with adding some embellishments — ribbons, twine, or sequins. But nothing looked quite right. I decided that sometimes simple is best.
We hope you’ll join us and create your own card using the sketch! We love to see what you make. 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!

So pretty Amy! The dsp you chose is fantastic and the glittered sentiment adds the perfect amount of sparkle and shine. I love it! I’ve had to make a few last minute cards myself but none of them looked as wonderful as yours. ; )
I love quick and easy cards that pack a punch and this sure does! Super cute!
Loved the Celebration Candles card. Noting else was needed. This is perfect. Also liked the freshly made sketches cards as well. Maureen
Brilliant use of dsp Amy and I love the sparkly sentiment. You definitely made the right call by not adding the strip!

That is one fancy birthday card! The sparkly sentiment paired with those candles are fabulous!
This is such a pretty card Amy! I love that paper and the glittery sentiment! So perfect to celebrate someone’s special day!!!
That sparkly die-cut word is just gorgeous and works beautifully with the fun patterned paper!
I don’t this DSP. I don’t need this DSP – it’s totally awesome and would be perfect for a class.
