Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #223

Happy Wednesday!  I'm sorry I haven't has as many new cards posted lately.  It's been a busy week.  Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to get back into the craft room!  

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess in the one and only Amy O'Neill.  Amy designs such amazing cards and I love her colour combinations and creative designs!

So, shockingly, the first thing I tried with this card didn't work out!  I wanted to make this into a Valentine's Day card.  I tired a few different things but nothing worked out.  I found my Awesome Blossom Stamps from Lil' Inkers and knew that I would love to ink them up!  Of course then I ran into a sentiment issue but finally decided to use the Sentiments Flag Original Stamps!  Because of the way I made my flower ring, I couldn't put my sentiment across the bottom of the circle like in the sketch.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Silver
Stamps: Awesome Blossom, Sentiments Flag Original
Ink: Cucumber Crush, Pink Pirouette, Melon Mambo, Perfect Plum, Pool party, Island Indigo, Watermelon Wonder, So Saffron, Stazon Black
Other: Double Stitched Circles (Lil' Inkers), Stitched Flag (Lil' Inkers), Circle Banners Dies (Lil' Inkers), Dimensionals

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

We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a great day!
