Freshly Made Sketch


Hello Friends,

Today’s card is for this great sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

When I saw all the circles and then remembered I needed an upcoming Birthday

card using balloons…I knew I could blend those two things together perfectly!


FMS Final 123-001

In hindsight I wish I hadn’t started putting the doodle dots everywhere with a pen.

I cut out the 50 using my Cricut and the balloons are made with a MS punch,

along with the small hearts.

The sentiment is from Close To My Heart in the Birthday Occasions set.

Some pop dots, ribbon and black twine and that sums it up.

Have a spectacular day and find sometime to be creative,
