Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #300

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We are so enjoying our summer.  We've had some great bike rides this week and yesterday we made a trip to the Royal Botanical Gardens!  I think later in the week we'll be heading to the Hockey Hall of Fame!  It's been such a nice summer so far and I'm hoping the the last few weeks are just as wonderful!

Welcome to our celebration of Sketch #300 at Freshly Made Sketches!  Six years ago, Lesley Croghan created an idea to make cards that were clean but not necessarily simple.  Using sketches as a foundation, many stampers found their niche and this challenge has been a place of inspiration and encouragement.  This week, we are excited to share our 300th sketch.  Wow!! 

The team will decide the Queen or King and then we will all choose our favorites to highlight, as usual.  BUT....we will also choose one random winner from the gallery to receive all of the cards created by the design team with this sketch!  We are so grateful for your support over these six years and want to send out a special thank you!

Our sketch is super fun this week and believe it or not, this card was my first attempt!!!

I used some of the retired Party Animal DSP and some of the new glimmer Dots!  Who doesn't love a bit of sparkle!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pacific Point, Crushed Curry
Stamps: Frozen Treat
Ink: Pacific Point
Other: Oval Dies (Spellbinders), Glimmer Dots, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing the cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration!   You may even be fortunate enough to win all of the Design Team's cards!

Have a fabulous day!
