Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #310

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great week so far.  I had a crazy busy last week.  My husband was so sweet and got me a new computer for my birthday so I am up and running again.  Don't get me wrong,  I like my iPad but some things don't work well on the iPad.  The boys both had presentations that required the computer so we are thankful to be back in business!  Oh how we've become so dependent on technology.  That part I don't like so much.

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today courtesy of the amazingly creative Kim Singdahlsen.  I know that I'd definitely love to go to Colorado and visit Kim and play with all of her fun stamps and dies!  I'd love to see those gorgeous mountains too!!!

This sketch kinda stumped me.  Mainly because I was super tired when I was trying to make the card, I had a ton of thank you cards to make and wasn't feel the most creative.  I want to try and get as many Christmas cards done now as I can.  I'm falling behind though.  I need to get my act together!!! I do love the wise men from the Wise Men From Afar set.  I also really love when they're embossed in gold.  I decided to do a completely black and gold themed card.  You will notice that a sentiment is missing.  I just couldn't figure out where it would work best so I went without.  I may go back this week sometime and add one in somewhere.

Cardstock: Basic Black, Gold
Stamps: Wise Men From Afar
Ink: Versamark
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Softly Falling Textured Embossed Folder,  Gold Sequins, Dimensionals.

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

Have a fabulous day!
