Freshly Made Sketches 520

Hi stamping friends!  It's time for a new challenge at Freshly Made Sketches and yours truly is the hostess this week.  I chose - surprise, surprise - a square card for my sketch.  But, as I always say, you can use another shape if squares aren't your thing.  Here's what I did with the sketch.

I happened to spy this colorful and cheerful patterned paper in my stash the other day and thought it would look super cute for this sketch.  I was right!  The gingham looks so cute with the florals!  I actually attached an entirely different sentiment to this card at first but after looking at it for a bit I thought it was too dark and too big.  So I made this rounded square and stamped a prettier sentiment on it and layered it over the old sentiment.  I hope whoever gets this card doesn't start investigating my crafting techniques and discover the sentiment underneath!

Thanks for stopping by!  My fellow Freshly Made Sketches teammates have, once again, knocked it out of the park with this sketch so be sure to check them out!

I love these sweet flowers and they pair beautifully with the gingham. I have liberally applied my strongest adhesive on replacement sentiments a time or two myself. :) A fun sketch, Jen!

Love the gingham and the sweet flowers! This is cute, Jen. I do the same thing with crafting sometimes and hope no one takes my cards apart LOL!

I love your square sketches - I enjoy making square cards but never think to do it without the prompt of a sketch! And your card is pink perfection! That paper is so very pretty!
