Blue Floral Happy Birthday

Freshly Made sketches came out with this CAS sketch and is designed by Tui:

The "Clean Team really out did themselves this week with their "Fresh Made" creations. You really need to check them out and see for yourself how amazing their cards are. I promise you won't be disappointed.
Here is my humble little card:
 I feel like I kind of cheated and here is why: I like to go to the dollar section at Michael's because sometimes they have such pretty note cards without any sentiments on the front. When I get them home I like to decorate them and add a sentiment.. That is what this pretty little floral card is. It already had the scalloped edge and the flower print. I just added the paper strips and stamped the flourish and the happy birthday.
 The best part is that they also had 6x6 pattern paper to match the cards. I also love that the glitter is already on the flowers and I don't have to deal with glitter all over.
I wanted to add some clear gemstones but couldn't find them. Then I remembered I had some blue pearls and used them instead.
My aunt has a birthday coming up and her favorite color is blue so I am making a set of eight of these note cards for her. I will use four different sentiments and stamps but keep the sketch the same.
Have a good evening.


  1. The note card with its blue floral print is very pretty on its own. But you have made it beautiful by the addition of the textured panel, the fabulous stamp, and the pearls! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. What a beautiful print in the background and the stamped image is great. Glad you joined us this week at FMS!

  3. It never occurred to me to take a note card and embellish it some more! That's a great idea! I really like how you made this even more pretty with the lovely sentiment and pearls! Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

    P.S. It would be really helpful if you turned Word Verification off. It's sometimes difficult to decipher the images. And it would make commenting so much easier! Thanks.

  4. What a lovely sentiment - and those blue pearls are the perfect touch. Thanks for playing along with this week's sketch!


Thanks for leaving me a comment. I really enjoy reading them.
