Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches 381!
Lee Ann Barrett is hosting the challenge this week and giving us her first sketch as a member of the Clean Team! Just look at all the lovely space we have to play with!
I really thought I'd cleverly come up with a way to put the right number of candles on this milestone birthday card for my dad, but when I showed it to my husband, he just didn't get it.
A black panel is trimmed, with an embossing folder adding interest to the the larger piece and an older MFT Spotlight Sentiments stamp heat embossed on the narrow piece. A narrow strip of red cardstock separates the two pieces as they are adhered to the card base.
The five Elizabeth Crafts candles are layered on the embossed panel. I hope the "5 x 18" candles made sense to you and I'm pretty confident my about-to-turn-90-years-old dad will enjoy it. We've been threatening to put the correct number of candles on his cake for years but always end up with a mathematical representation instead. Concord & 9th Double Cut Alphabet and Number dies were used to make this year's equation.
The Clean Team has terrific cards to inspire you - I hope you get a chance to play along with us at Freshly Made Sketches this week!
Thanks for stopping by,
