Freshly Made Sketches #81

Hello my friends!  It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and today Cindy Hall brings us a really awesome one.  I wanted to do something fun with the sketch and use my new balloon stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink.  Birthday card!

Super cute balloons!  I'm struggling with the pearls though; I don't really like them on this card.  What do you think?

Here is Cindy's great sketch:

  1. I love that stamp set, and the window is great! It's such a festive birthday card, and as for the pearls, I love them. They look like little glassine bubbles in the photo and it took me a minute to figure out what they were made of. I think they're a great complement!

  2. This is such a fun card Linda! I love the balloons and I think the pearls add a nice touch!

  3. Oh my goodness! I think this is so super fun! Love the balloons (that's saying a lot as I'm super scared of them in real life!).

  4. Love this super fun card Linda! The balloons are fabulous! I love that stamp set! I think the pearls look fine! I love pearls and would put them on everything if I could!!!!

  5. I absolutely love this card Linda! I loved it as soon as I saw it in the gallery - what a fabulous card for a child! I think the pearls are fabulous and your sentiment is wonderful!

  6. I love the pop of red with your pearls!

  7. Oh, Linda! I LOVE absolutely everything about this card -- the stamp set (super cute), the dsp, the layout, the colors, and the pearls. Perfect card!

  8. Fab take on the sketch! Awesome pops of color! tfs
