Freshly Made Sketches #427

I have been on a mission to mail more cards this year….excited to announce that I am doing great at actually mailing them!  Which also means, my supply is getting depleted!  I created this card based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches

I love fun, bright colors.  My card started with a 6×6 paper pad from Doodlebug Design Inc., called Hello.  Many of the prints have a touch of gold in them. I chose some bright prints for my candles and die cut them with dies from MFT.  In keeping with the sketch, I needed a bold sentiment that would stand out over the top of them.  I cut the word celebrate, from the Cricut Artbooking Collection, out three times and adhered them together for more dimension. I matted everything in gold foil and added in a few gold sequins to complete the card.  Super simple and the card certainly “pops”.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
