Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #118

Hello and Happy New Year!
I trust everyone had a great Christmas and New Years!  I was so thankful to have a two week break and enjoyed the time with my family!  I didn't craft once over the holidays and it was wonderful!  I relaxed and just enjoyed being able to do nothing!

We are back at Freshly Made Sketches with another fabulous addition to our Design Team!  We welcome the very talented Karren Johnson to our team!  I have admired her work for a long time and we are so glad she has joined us!

This week's sketch is brought to us courtesy of Jen Mitchell!  I must say her cards always wow me!  Her sketch is fabulous and so versatile this week, though I must say that it did stump me. I think my brain is still in relax mode!
I decided to haul out a few things from the new Occasions Catalogue!  Who doesn't like fun new things!    I do love the Retro Fresh DSP!  The Perfect Pennants stamps and framelits and who doesn't love natural chevron trim?!

Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar, So Saffron,
DSP: Retro Fresh
Stamps: Perfect Pennants
Ink: Versamark
Other: White Embossing Powder, Basic Pearls, Natural Chevron Trim, Banners Framelits, Square Lattice TIEF, Dimensionals

Have a fabulous day!

    Totally cool card, Jennifer, I would not have thought of using white embossing powder on brown cardstock, its very effective. I love all the texture in your card.
