Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #325

Hello Everyone!
Happy Wednesday!  We are having some crazy warm weather here in Southern Ontario!  It was 14 degrees here yesterday!  Felt like summer!  Okay, maybe not quite but it's far better than -35!  I think it's nicer to have rain than snow except that the kids didn't get outside at all yesterday at school so they played basketball and hockey outside in the rain when they got home.  They needed to blow off some steam!  A little rain never hurt anyone right?!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the queen of embellishments and colours - one of our Texan Designers - Amy O'Neill!  Amy's cards are always so beautiful and she can put things together that look absolutely amazing!  Go and check out her creations!

So I opted to go with a daisy for my card this week.  I think I rebelled a bit against that large star and circle!!  I love the old daisy dies from SU.  I haul them out every so often when I want the perfect daisy!  I embossed the background, threw on some sequins and voila!  I wish it had come together as quickly as that!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight
Stamps: Bitty Banners (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Daisy Die (SU - Retired), Pinewood Planks, Sequins, Circle Punch, Bitty Banners Confettti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Dimensionals

Thanks again so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created!  You will be inspired!

Have a fabulous week!
