Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #234

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  It's hard to believe that this coming weekend is May!  How is that even possible?!  Hopefully with the start of May comes the start of some warmer temperatures!  We haven't had very nice weather at all this week and maybe all these April showers will bring some May flowers!!!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing Jennifer Timko!  Jen and I have had the privilege of meeting (twice!) and she is one of the loveliest people you could ever spend time with!

Jen has such a great sketch for us this week!  I know you'll find it super versatile and there are so many ways to create amazing cards with this beauty!

We haven't had much sunshine around here lately so I wanted to create a card with the Stampin' Up Sunburst Die because you can never have too much sunshine!  I added a strip of DSP, mounted my sentiment on a gold circle (can't have too much gold either) and added a sentiment on vellum.  It may sound like the card went together quickly but trust me, it was trial and error. What colour should the background be, what DSP to use, what colour ink...I'm so indecisive in some areas!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Daffodil Delight, Gold
DSP:  Cherry on Top DSP Stack
Stamps: Sunburst Sayings
Ink: Versamark Black
Other: Sunburst Thinlit, Circle Punches, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for you!  Those girls amaze me with their creativity!

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Wow I love this bright burst of color! Fun card! The sentiment on the vellum is perfect!

  2. Great take on the sketch, Jen! Love that big bright sunshine and I hope you get to see it in real life soon. We're having a really warm autumn here with summer temps, so the weather is a bit off worldwide I think!

  3. Huzzah to lots of sunshine. April has been a bit wishy-washy around here too so we have to resort to finding our sunshine on the fronts of beautiful cards! I love the polka-dotted strip and a sentiment on vellum is always a fave of mine!

  4. I needed this sunny card today!! Dreary and cool (again)...ugh!!!! Fabulous card. And thanks for the sweet made my day. Hugs!

  5. Oh I love this! The strip of DSP is a perfect match for your sunny card!
