Freshly Made Sketches #431

Hey Everyone

It’s time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  This week our sketch has been designed by the wonderfully talented Lee Ann Barrett. Take a look at her fab sketch:

I wanted an image to fill the background space of the sketch, so these pretty birds from the Free As A Bird Stamp Set came to mind.  I gave them colour with my Pool Party, Crumb Cake and Smoky Slate Blends.  The flowers have been coloured with Petal Pink Blends and the leaves have been quickly shaded with Old Olive Blends.

Another reason I chose the Free As A Bird Stamp Set was because of this great sentiment.  Got a few people in mind that I could give this card to at the moment.  The pretty paper I’ve used in the background is from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper pack.

The team at Freshly Made Sketches have created fabulous cards using this weeks sketch. Head over to the challenge and see what they’ve created.

Thanks for stopping by.
