Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #335

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!  We suddenly have Spring here in Southern Ontario!  I think we actually skipped spring and went straight for summer.  It was so beautiful and warm!  I missed playing along the last couple of weeks.  We did a renovation in my craft room (due to a leak in our basement) and the craft room was completely packed up.  My husband worked like a crazy man and got it all done in just two weeks.  He is amazing!  I moved in on Saturday and with the help of my son Jacob got everything unpacked.  Well, almost everything.  There are still a few things left to unpack!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing Jennifer Timko!  Jen is so creative and her cards always make me swoon!  Head over to her blog and check them out!

So the oval threw me for a bit but I quickly remembered I had oval dies and I even knew where they were!  It's going to take me a while to get used to the new layout of things in my craft room!  Anyhow I threw in some flowers and a sentiment and voila!  Okay, it didn't come together that easily. I had to add some texture to the centre oval because it looked blah without it!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Berry Burst, Lucky Limeade, Basic Black
Stamps: Sweet Celebration (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Berry Burst, Lucky Limeade, Always Artichoke
Other: Oval Dies, Scalloped Oval Dies, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Sweet Celebration Dies (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals, Black Jewels

Thanks so much for stopping in 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!  We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!
