Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #145

Happy Wednesday!  I'm so sorry that this post is only getting up this morning!  I remembered as I was heading out the door last night that I hadn't sat down and gotten it ready!  It was too late when I got home but I knew I would have time in the morning!!!

I hope you're having a great summer so far!  We had a great week at Harvest Kids Camp last week!  What an amazing week!  We had 827 kids who were very full of energy!  25 of those kids spent their week with me and my friend Julie and we introduced them to the world of stamping and card making!  What a hoot!

We had a brand new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  The incredibly talented Narelle Farrugia brings us a great sketch!  Narelle's cards are so beautifully layered and always so detailed!  I love them!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

The sketch stressed me out at first with that giant circle staring at me but we had used the new Flower Patch Polymer stamp set at Camp last week and I knew that it would work perfectly for this card!  I love the layering you can do with the flowers and especially love the coordinating die set!!!

I tried to line up the circles on the card with the Polka Dot Embossing Folder but as you can see, I was not successful!  Oh well!!!

Cardstock: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Pool Party, Silver
Stamps: Flower Patch
Ink: Island Indigo, Pool party, Versamark
Other: Polka Dot TIEF, Flower Patch Framelits, Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog, check out our sketch and the wonderful cards the Design Team has created for you!

Have a  fabulous day!
