Smooth Birthday

Hi and welcome to our last Freshly Made Sketch Challenge of the year!  Our hostess is the fabulous Jen Mitchell and she has come up with a square card sketch for us.  As an added bonus, we also have extended the challenge out to 2 January so you have plenty of time to make a card or two 😉

I love square cards and it's been a while since I made one, so this was a fun card to make.  Now, I have to confess that I had the tag with the images on made and waiting to put on another card, so I feel like I cheated a little bit here, but time was against me and I think you can still see the sketch.

Now that I'm done making Christmas cards to send for this year, I'm back to my NBUS mission.  It doesn't seem to be working too well though, because when I started my NBUS mission, I had 39 sets to use.  I've used several but now have 41 NBUS sets!  I blame the Black Friday sales that were going on because I've rarely met a sale I can resist 😃

The images were stamped, colored, die-cut and I added Glossy Accents to the bowl of the blender.  They were popped up onto a sponged tag with foam tape and the sentiment is white-embossed onto black.  The plaid paper was chosen to match the Copic colors and the whole card is 4.25" square.

Thanks so much for visiting this year.  Please check out the fabulous creations made by the rest of the design team and I hope all our FMS players have a wonderful holiday season.

No worries about the sketch hiding here! This is a fabulous take on it. I love that plaid background and the smoothie with the blender is so fun!

If you ain't cheating, you ain't trying!! I totally love these fun images. Perhaps inspiration to be done with cookies and start back on track?! Well, maybe! Happy New Year!
