Freshly Made Sketches #95

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are all having a great week.  I consider this our first week of summer vacation since we don't actually have anything planned!  I am super excited!  If only the weather would cooperate and we would get some slightly cooler, less humid temperatures!

Today we have a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.  Our hostess this week is our fabulous Narelle Farrugia!  She is the queen of layers and beautiful bows.  Her card this week is no exception!
I must say that this sketch threw me for a loop.  I am not the queen of layers and I never know what to do when there are several "boxes" to work with.  I may have tried a few versions of this card before I decided on this one!  I'm a little bummed that the Perfectly Preserved stamp set has retired.  I must say that I do love it.  I paired some Calypso Coral up with the new Crisp Cantaloupe!   I am somewhat satisfied with the results.  I added a little Dazzling Diamonds on the flower bunches to make them sparkle!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, Crisp Cantaloupe
DSP: Tea for Two
Stamps: Perfectly Preserved
Ink: Calypso Coral, Early Espresso, Old Olive
Other: Cannery Framelits, Itty Bitty Banners Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and check out the beautiful creations the Design Team has come up with!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Sweet as can be! I love the mason jar with flowers - and the bit of sparkle is delightful!

  2. Cute, cute, cute!! Love your colors and the layers you chose. Perfect stamp!

  3. Pretty card, Jen! I love the Crisp Cantaloupe and Calypso Coral together, and they both look great with Crumb Cake.

  4. Awesome job with the sketch. Love your popped up flowers and little bit of bling!

  5. I think you should be much more than slightly satisfied with this! It's beautiful! The colors are so crisp and warm and definitely put me in a summery mood!

  6. Sorry bout all the layers on the sketch Jen! You've created a wonderful card and worked those layers perfectly! Loving all those flowers combined with the Perfectly Preserved Jar!

  7. You did great with all those boxes, Jen. :) I love this stamp set it and have it on my "keep" shelf.

  8. Awesome card Jen! I love the jar stamp with the flowers. Somewhere I have a jar stamp set; I need to dig that out. I'm loving the inspiration!

  9. So sweet! Who doesn't love a jar full of flowers? I sure do! :)
