Freshly Made Sketches #282

Hey Everyone

There’s a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. This week our sketch hostess is the fabulously talented Cecile Ribon.  I fell in love with this sketch as soon as I saw it.  It’s such a cool design that made making my card easy and come together in no time.  A no time card was what I needed as I’m on hols and sunning it up by the beach until next week.  Take a look at the friends I made while I was putting my card together on Monday. These cheeky birds have me wrapped around their little fingers (if they had any) and have me feeding them 3 times a day.

Now on to Cecile’s cool sketch:

You probably know by now about my love of flower stamp sets.  The stamp set I have used is from Stampin’ Up!s Oh So Succulent. The flowers I have stamped are quite possibly supposed to be made into succulents, but I decided to colour mine and make a Dahlia out of it.  I have paired them with some leaves from Stylish Stems Framelit Dies.  The squares in the background are from Urban Underground Speciality Designer Series Paper – which I LOVE! The sentiments I’ve used are from Balloon Adventures. There are so many of the sentiments that I use from this versatile set.

Here’s my card:

As always, the Design Team at Freshly Made Sketches has nailed it and created gorgeous cards to inspire you. Head over to the challenge and take a look.  While you’re there, we would love it if you could play along.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Narelle, you have nailed this sketch! It’s a tough one, not sure I want to tackle it, but what a gorgeous card you came up with!

  2. Beautiful,

    Love how you have coloured the flowers and the placement of flowers and leaves on the 3 squares.

  3. Using patterned papers for the squares on the sketch is a great idea and your card is just gorgeous! I hope you’re enjoying your holiday and the birds don’t follow you home! Trust me, we had one for a pet for about 10 years and had to give him away because he was so noisy!

  4. That is one gorgeous card! I love the mix of the patterned paper with the beautiful flowers! Amazing as always! Those birds are fabulous! I totally wish we had some of those here!!! I kinda think they don’t like snow though!

  5. Those flowers are fabulous – I would never guess they were supposed to be succulents! And lucky you making friends with those colorful birds. That’s amazing that they will come close to you to be fed!
