Freshly Made Sketch #480

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #480!

I admit I was a little intimidated by Jen's fabulous sketch this week until I thought about how I could arrange elements to give the illusion of a curved line. Butterflies were the first thing I thought of, although I almost immediately switched to cherry blossoms after seeing a few gorgeous trees in bloom on social media.

The Pretty Pink Posh Cherry Blossoms are stamped and embossed on watercolor paper before being colored with Kitsch Pink Distress Ink. While they dried, the curved line is added on a white panel using a Tim Holtz Burlap stencil. A little more color is added after the stencil is removed to soften the lines.

A few Pretty Pink Posh jewels add a bit of shine and the MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes sentiment is tucked in place.

The Clean Team has amazing cards to inspire you this week! I hope you will plan along with us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I'm linking this card to Seize the Birthday #211 in the Anything Goes category.
