Joy Fold Birthday
Clean & Simple 180

Freshly Made #24


I hope you have had a good week. I've enjoyed my first week of holiday just doing as I please and not being on a schedule is wonderful!

Today I have another birthday card using the Freshly Made #24 sketch, which is one of those versatile go-to sketches that lends itself to lots of options. Here is the sketch:


I'm having a love affair with the new Framelits Label Dies and 'Twitterpated' DSP (in case you hadn't already noticed!).  I chose another of the floral designs, this time with a Basic Gray background, which is a bit different.   The centre label has been embossed with the oval 'Designer Frame' embossing folder, to provide a frame for the sentiment.  I have chosen to go with a white oval in the centre, but it could be any colour, using the wide oval punch. I love the font on the sentiment from the Sale-a-bration stamp set 'Elementary Elegance' and it fits nicely into the wide oval either vertically or horizontally. It will definitely be a 'keeper'.

Absolutely gorgeous Judy, I will really have to get that Twitterpated DSP. The little flowers really finish it off beautifully.
