Freshly Made Sketches #76

Hello!  We have a new sketch for you today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Not only that, we have a new look and new design team members!  I am so excited to announce that I will continue on as a permanent member of the Clean Team.  I am so honored to be included in this circle of such talented and sweet ladies!

I am also hosting the sketch this week.  The inspiration for today's sketch came to me when I was sitting at my desk at work and glanced up at my Dilbert daily calendar.  I get a lot of layout ideas at work.  It's not unusual for me to be sitting in a meeting looking at the slides in some presentation and thinking, "that would make a great layout for a card."  Scribble, scribble on the margins of my notepad. I've got lots of these scribbles laying around.

And when I saw the gorgeous feathers in the new Make a Wish stamp set from A Muse Studio, I knew I had to use them on this card based on the sketch:

Here is my calendar-inspired sketch:

I hope you like my sketch and I hope you have fun with it.

Be sure to stop by Freshly Made Sketches and check out the "Fresh" new look and wonderful creations from the Clean Team!  And please come and play.  I'd love to see your take on my sketch!   

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
