Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #159

Happy Wednesday!  Hope you're having a great week so far!  We've started out our week with a fair bit of rain and cloud.  I'm looking forward to a few days of sunshine again!  The leaves have been so beautiful but we need some sunshine to enjoy the last few days of them staying on the trees!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week our fabulous hostess is Jen Mitchell!  Jen makes the most amazing cards and you need to head over to her blog to check out those beauties!
Surprisingly despite that giant circle on this card, it didn't take me long to come up with an idea!  I may have celebrated my "30th" birthday again this past weekend and now need some thank you cards to thank some very special people who spoiled me rotten!

I decided to use a word bubble instead of a circle and the Just Sayin' stamp set worked just perfectly! I needed a little texture on that small square panel and I couldn't help but use the polka dot textured embossing folder!

The card needed a little something else so I decided to emboss some of the flowers from the Pictogram Punches stamp set!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Pictogram Punches, Just Sayin'
Ink: Versamark
Other: Word Bubbles Framelits, Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Accents Punches (Flower Punch), Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful cards the Design Team has created for you!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a fabulous day!
