Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #296

Happy Wednesday!  I am sorry I missed out on last week's challenge!  It was our church camp week! We had such a busy but fun week!  Our camp had just over 1000 kids for the week and we had just over 40 kids making cards all day!  It was fun to see their pride in their creations and the amazement when they saw embossing powder melt for the first time!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the fabulous Jen Timko!  Jen's cards are so fun and her colouring and creativity amazes me!  I'm so fortunate to have met Jen (twice!) and think another get together is definitely in order!!!

Jen has picked a great sketch and I love the square card!  At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it but then realized I needed some teacher thank you cards!  Yes, our kids are finally done school!  I made these cards a while ago!!!  Please don't think I'm really slow given our teachers their cards!

I used the Carried Away DSP (again!) and the Class Act stamp set and Confetti cuts from Reverse Confetti.  I added a bright red flag to contrast!  I love red.  It is totally my favourite colour!  Of course I added a bit of Wink of Stella to the apple leaf.  I couldn't help myself.  The camp kids LOVED using Wink of Stella too!  See, I'm not the only one who loves it!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Smokey Slate, Basic Black, Real Red, Gumball Green, Red Shimmer
DSP: Carried Away
Stamps: Class Act (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon
Other: Class Act Confetti Cuts, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

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

Have a fabulous day!
