A Hand Delivered Birthday Cake — FMS376

We have a new sketch for you over at Freshly Made Sketches, and it come from half-way around the world.  Karren Johnson, our favorite New Zealand resident, has a simple and versatile sketch for us.  Take a look:

While the sketch may be simple, it definitely wasn’t easy for me.  All of that white space freaks me out!  I knew I wanted to make a birthday card and as I was perusing the sets on my shelf, I came across the Hand Delivered stamp set, which is a hostess set that I haven’t used in a few months.  I decided it was time to dust it off and have some fun coloring.

I started by stamping the images, coloring them with markers, and cutting them out by hand.  I then stamped the fun banners from the Pick a Pennant stamp set with Petal Pink ink, stamping off on a piece of scratch paper first to add a softer touch.

The sentiment is from the Well Said stamp set and coordinating framelits.

We hope you’ll join us and make your own card using the sketch.  We love to see what your create as we browse the gallery each week.  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!
