Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #227

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week so far!  We've had some beautiful weather and finally our snow is GONE!  Yup!  Last week at this time we were praying for a snow day (which we didn't get) and now we are enjoying some beautiful spring weather!  March break is just around the corner here and my boys are super excited to see their Papa and Grannie (and their best friend Simon the cat) very soon!

We have a great new sketch here at Freshly Made Sketches today!  Our hostess this week is none other than the amazing Linda Callahan!  Linda is one of my favourite people and is always making us laugh!  I also love Linda's creative and super cute cards!  Head over to her blog and check out her creations!

I saw those squares on Linda's sketch and kinda decided I didn't like squares.  They reminded me of circles...only with corners!!!  I thought flowers would work much better for me!
I had made a card using this "flower" on the weekend for a friend and thought it would work perfectly.  These "flowers" are really Confetti Cut Suns!  I threw on some leaves from the SU Secret Garden Framelits!  The flowers needed a fun centre and I have some Champagne Glimmer paper laying around and thought that would be just what I needed!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Champagne Glimmer
Stamps: LJD Birthday Greetings (MFT)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Secret Garden Framelits, Sun 'n Clouds Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Circle Punch, Dimensionals

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

Have a fabulous day!
