Happy Friday all!

I created this card for this week's Freshly Made Sketches. The Design Team over at FMS always come up with simple and quick design sketches, and this week's no exception. 


Clean and Simple and Quick & Easy is what this sketch is all about. I left a lot of white space because I thought it would be a bold contrast against the large Night of Navy circle.

My sentiment banner in Stampin' Up!'s Gingham Garden Designer Series Paper is also a striking contrast against all the white since the Night of Navy repeats itself and pulls you right to the sentiment. This is a perfect example of "color balance". The Night of Navy is strategically placed throughout the sketch design giving the card a balanced look.

The sentiment and frame is from one of Stampin' Up!'s new Hostess Sets, Sweetly Framed.
