Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #233

Happy Wednesday friends!  I hope you're having a great week!  We had some amazing weather this past weekend!  It was so fun to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunshine!  I think the kids were aiming to see how many different sports they could play outside in one day!  We had hockey, basketball, scooter, bikes and golf going!  They were so tired when they finally came in!  It was perfect!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing, Artisan Design Team member Amy O'Neill!  Amy creates the most beautiful cards.  She has a way with colour and embellishments!

Okay, so you can see the circle hiding in there right?!  I knew that I'd have to dig deep on this one!  I love the Circle Scribbles stamps by My Favourite Things.  I decided to colour some flowers up  with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers.  They are so fun and I do have fun with them!  I decided to use a strip of vellum across the back rather than trying to pick a colour.   I wanted to keep the background simple so the flowers would really and out!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Watercolour paper
Paper: Vellum
Stamps: LJD Circle Scribbles, LJD Blissful Butterflies (Both My Favourite Things)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Circle Scribbles Die-namics, Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers,  Double Stitched Squares (Lil' Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful cards the Design Team has come up with!

Have a wonderful day!
