Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #235
Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great start to your week! The trees are starting to get their leaves and the tulips and daffodils are finally blooming. It seems so late this year! My hostas are poking out of the ground and I bought Jacob a cherry tomato plant for the deck. It's his plant to take care of. We'll see how long it lasts. He loves tomatoes so hopefully he manages to take care of it well so he can enjoy the "fruits" of his labour!
We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today! Our talented hostess is the amazing Jen Mitchell! Jen creates the most beautiful cards! I love her style and her clean lines! She has a great sketch of us this week and it is a super fun one to work with.
I needed an anniversary card for my in laws and once I saw the sketch and knew I needed an anniversary card, I decided to ink up my Pleasant Poppies! I love that stamp set! It makes me smile!!!
I used some white embossing powder and despite my best efforts it still got everywhere! I decided to use some silver embossing powder on the "Celebrate". It worked quiet well actually. I managed to successfully emboss it without burning my fingers!!! That's always a plus!
Cardstock: Real Red, Basic Black
