Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #128

Hello (again!)
Happy Wednesday!  I can't believe how quickly Wednesday came around!  I must say I am a big fan of Wednesdays!  It's bathroom cleaning and bootcamp day!  Some of you might think I'm crazy but I do love clean bathrooms and who doesn't love a night at bootcamp with some great girls?!

Today brings us a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's hostess is Rita Wright!  She has been totally rocking this online course most of our Design Team has been taking together!  Check out her blog to see the fabulous cards she's been churning out the last few days!

I was a little stumped with the sketch at first!  I had something else in mind for this card when I started out but changed my mind since I really wanted to use the Hardwood background stamp!  I decided to spare you using Basic Grey and yellow again and chose Raspberry Ripple instead!!!  I also realized I hadn't used the Hexagon die yet and wanted to give that a whirl!

I saved some of the punched out hexagons and attached them with dimensionals to give the card a bit of lift!  I threw on some rhinestones as well because I simply can't imagine a card without bling!!!!

Cardstock: Basic Grey, Raspberry Ripple, Whisper White
Stamps: Hardwood, Perfect Pennants
Ink: Basic Grey
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Hexagon Die, Banners Framelits, Raspberry Ripple Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog!  The design team has created some fantastic cards!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a fabulous day!
