Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #201

Happy Wednesday!  We are back to another Wednesday already!  Thank you all so very much for your participation in our 200th sketch challenge last week!  We love how many of you created cards for our challenge!  It was amazing to see each and every one!

We have another great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess this week is Narelle Farrugia.  Narelle makes the most beautiful cards.  Those flowers and all that fussy cutting and oh, don't forget those gorgeous layers!  Head on over to her blog and check them all out!

We had a sweet little birthday boy at our house this past week.  This particular now 7 year old LOVES soccer!  One of his many loves actually.  I decided to turn that evil circle into a soccer ball.  Solved the circle issue right away!  I used the hexagon embossing folder and die to create that soccer ball look!

I originally had a white background instead of green but it was a little too elegant looking for a 7 year old!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Gumball Green
Stamps: Sentiment Flag Additions (Lil' Inkers)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Stitched Rectangles (Lil' Inkers), Stitched Flag Die (Lil' Inkers), Sequins, Hexagon Embossing Folder, Hexagon Die, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I sure hope you'll head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and check out what the Design Team has "whipped" up for you!  We can't wait to see what you create for us!  

Have a fabulous day!

  4. The green background is the perfect addition to this card - gives it a grassy touch! The soccer ball is the perfection addition to the sketch - again you have nailed the circle shape from the sketch!

  5. The way you created that soccer ball is brilliant! What a clever design and the green in the background just emphasizes it even more. I bet that special birthday boy I loved this card!

  6. Love, love, love!! I know some other boys who would think this the best b-day card!
