Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #256

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great week!  It's been a super busy week here so far with all fall programs now in full swing.  The boys have had a very exciting week so far.  On Saturday, we added a new member to our family.  We have adopted a little, 12 week old kitten!  This little girl is Jacob's cat and he's named her Pepsi!  We've decided she lives up to her name - sweet and spicy!   She was so timid at first and wouldn't come out of hiding but she has gotten over her timidness and is now our best friend!  She loves to cuddle and I have never heard a cat purr so loudly!!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jennifer Timko!  Jen creates beautiful cards and you need to head over to her blog to check them out!

Now, this is not the first card I created.  I started with one idea and made a card that I totally thought I would go with.  It sat on the counter for Monday afternoon and part of Tuesday when I realized I didn't like it.  It was also just black and white.  I seem to only make black and white cards.  Not that this card is too much different!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Real Red
DSP: Stacked with Love DSP stack (retired)
Other: Botanical Builders Dies, Banners Framelits Dies, Hello Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created!

Here's a sweet picture of our Pepsi to start your day!

I LOVE the black, white, and red colors - this so bold and graphic. What a great take on the sketch!
