Happy Wednesday! It's time for a new sketch from Freshly Made Sketches and I am so happy to be sharing with you today! Jennifer Mitchell has given us a really great sketch to work with and I think it is just perfect for that spring theme.
I am in Albuquerque while I am writing this post, visiting my nieces who are on spring break at the University of New Mexico. The daffodils and trees are just blooming here and there is a fresh breeze in the air that can only mean spring is here. So my card, which I made before I came here, matches my mood perfectly:
I used the Birds & Blooms stamp set from Papertrey Ink which has a gorgeous wreath and can be filled with lots of pretty flowers for any season. I choose yellow, orange and pink for spring. Papertrey has come out with a die for the wreath now, but since I didn't have it yet, I fussy cut it. It was pretty easy to do, but I skipped the inside. I thought the wreath needed something a bit extra, so I added the pretty blue birds. I am very happy with how the card turned out.
Here is the awesome sketch from Jen:
