Sketch #251 - A Sketch by Cindy

Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches!  Each week, one member of our design team creates a sketch for you to try, the twist is to keep your project clean-lined and fresh! The "Clean Team" has come up with some "Freshly Made" designs to get you in the spirit! We are so excited to visit you and to see what YOU create with our sketch!

Hi!  Cindy here, and I'm so excited about hosting this week!  I've created a clean and simple sketch for you to play with.  I hope you like it and are inspired to join us this week; I'm always so honored to see card makers creating cards with a sketch that I designed!  Check out what the Design Team created this week... 
We have a few simple rules to keep things fun and fair for all of our players:
  1. Please use any crafting product you would like to use.
  2. Feel free to combine our sketch with up to THREE other challenges, except another sketch challenge.
  3. Please add a DIRECT link to your blog or other online gallery when adding your card to the linky below.  If linking to a public gallery, please use keyword FMS251.
  4. Please include our sketch and a link back to Freshly Made Sketches on your post.
  5. Have fun!
This challenge will end at 12:00 PDT on Monday, August 29th. On Tuesday we will announce the winner of this week's sketch challenge who will known as the "Queen of Clean" and each Design Team Member will choose one "Princess".


  1. What a beautiful lineup of inspiring cards from the design team! Wow! Thanks to all of you for your hard work at running this challenge and for all the great ideas!

  2. Thanks for all the fabulous inspiration and for the fun sketch to create with!

  3. I want to put my card using sketch 251 on here, but I do not have a blog which apparently you need. How do I just send you my card for inclusion please. I am just a home card maker so have never seen the need for a blog or any such thing. Cheer Lyn

    1. No need for a blog Lyn. If you belong to a stamping community (like Splitcoast Stampers) and you've added your card to your gallery there then you can link to that. Or you can link a card you've posted to Flickr, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or any other social media you might belong to. And if none of that works for you then simply email a picture of your card to and we'll upload it for you!

    2. Thanks you for your reply - not being particularly knowledgeable with the internet, I will email you a copy of my card. Thanks for your help.

  4. What a great sketch! Love all of the gorgeous inspiration cards the DT created!

  5. This sketch really inspired me. I hope I posted my sample correctly. Thanks for all the inspiration here.
