Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #290

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  We've had a great start to our week!  We were able to spend this past weekend with my parents.  I was able to get the last 3 camp projects cut and ready to go!  I have never been ready a month before camp starts!  Woohoo!!

We have a fantastic new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Kim Singdahlsen!  Kim makes the most beautiful cards!  I always love seeing what she comes up with each and every time she makes a card!

Kim's sketch is super fun!  I had some of the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP sitting on my craft table and decided to use it.  I'm still very sad that the botanical builders and Watermelon Wonder are retiring but I don't think that will stop me from using them!!!  Of course there is some Wink of Stella on the flower!  I don't think I can do a card without it!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Basic Black
DSP: Tasty Treats Specialty DSP
Stamps: LJD Birthday Greetings (MFT)
Ink: Versamark Black
Other: Botanical Builders Framelits Dies, Double Stitched Circles (Lil Inkers), Wink of Stella, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the fabulous cards the Design Team has created!   You won't be disappointed!

Have a fabulous day!
