Freshly Made Sketches #388

Our fun sketch this week is from Clean Team Designer Karren Johnson! I really wanted to use a circle stamp in my design so pulled out PTI Sketched Shapes and played around with a few different colors before deciding on the New Leaf and Limeade Ice greens.

The inspiration to place the Poppystamps Boddington Tree border die cut in front of the sketchy circles came from this cool card by Jen Wills.  A simple birthday sentiment from MFT Sweet Succulents is heat embossed on the green panel before it is adhered to the white woodgrain embossed panel. The tree rectangle is popped up above the sentiment to finish off the card.

I'm linking this card to Seize the Birthday#165 in the Anything Goes category.
