Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #231

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're week has started out well!  We have had a good start to the week. The boys have a PA Day on Friday so they get the day off school.  I don't quite know what we'll be doing but I'll have to think of something exciting!  I'm sure running around doing grocery shopping won't quite fit the bill!  I can't see why not?!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the fabulous Karren Johnson!  Karren is such a creative card maker!  I totally love the fun cards she makes!

I needed a sympathy card this week.  I love the Field Flowers stamp set for sympathy cards. I actually love it for any cards.  I wish it hadn't retired!  I used a combination of Sahara Sand and Early Espresso to create the flowers.  I used some scraps I had to create the end pieces. There is no science to the end measurements.  I kinda just cut them and glued them together!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso
DSP: I can't remember where this is from...It's SU though!
Stamps: Field Flowers, Sentiment Flags (Lil' Inkers)
Ink: Sahara Sand, Early Espresso, Old Olive
Other: Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Basic Pearls, Sentiment Flag Die, Dimesionals

Thanks again for stopping in today! I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created!  We can't wait to see what you'll create for our challenge!

Have a wonderful day!
