Wish Big!

Last week was card sketch week at Sketch Support. I am still running a bit behind (holiday mode) so I am just posting my card now. Here is the sketch by Allison Davis. You can visit the Sketch Support site and download a printable copy for yourself.

Here is my version. I am not much of a card maker. I would usually try and make this sketch into a 2-page layout, but my BFF was celebrating a birthday and I wanted to make her a special card so I thought I would give it a try.

Wish Big

I stuck with the cupcake theme and I pulled out a stamp that I had and did a little paper piecing.

Wish Big 4

I love this ribbon and I used my last little piece to make this bow.

Wish Big 3

I created a border using a black pen and my sentiment stamp.

Wish Big 2

It was successful because Joanne loved it. I also gave her this rag quilt that Amanda and I worked on. Joanne had seen Amanda working on some of the squares and fell in love with it. I knew then that this quilt had found a home where it would be loved and well used. Happy Birthday Joanne!


Be sure to visit the Sketch Support website and check out all the creations by the creative team. This week is 2-page sketch week (my favourite) so stay tuned for my layout!
