Freshly Made Sketches - #21

Hi there

The weather here in Auckland can not make up it's mind what season it should be.  It's meant to be summer but was raining AGAIN this morning.  So what else can a girl do but make a card :)

Today's card is for a very good family friend who is celebrating his birthday today - I know I'm a bit late but will drop it off shortly.

The sketch from Freshly Made Sketches is perfect for what I had in mind - using a Sweet Treats Cup.  The sketch has a circle (or any shape) for an image so I used my Movers & Shapers Die to cut the hole where I wanted it.  I think that this die is the most under rated die.  I use it heaps and it's great for Sweet Treat Cups.  It allows you to position your hole where you want with the magnetic plate and the circle die.  If you use a punch you are limited to where you can position the hole.  It also has the heart die which fits the Heart Treats Cup.  I'll try and show you one of those next week.

So that you don't have to damage the card to get at the M&M's I have created a 'trap door' on the inside.  I teamed this up with the colour challenge from Hand Stamped Sentiments.  I love the clean and simple look of this card.

Well I'm off to do some scrapbooking this afternoon (haven't done any since December!).  Hope the rest of your weekend is good.
