Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #155

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We are having some great weather here in Ontario and we will take it as long as we can!  I love the cooler nights and the warm days.  The sunshine was so beautiful today!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of the extremely talented Karren Johnson.  Karren makes such beautiful cards.  Head over to her blog and take a look!
I am starting on getting those Christmas cards done.  It is a daunting task and I wish I were more organized.  I think I will settle on a design soon and go to town!

I mentioned earlier this week that I would be using the Festive Flurry stamp set again.  I just can't help it.  I love those snowflakes!  They're so fun.  I also embossed the silver on black again.  Instead of a tag I went with the Framelits Banners.  I wanted to keep the card simple and the background fairly clean.  I couldn't resist the red glimmer card stock or some bling!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black. Red Glimmer
Stamps: Festive Flurry, And Many More
Ink: Real Red, Versamark
Other: Banners Framelits, Festive Flurry Framelits, Silver Embossing Powder, Basic Rhinestones,  Frosted Finishes

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

Have a  wonderful day!
