Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #378

Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week is going well!  We are heading into March break here and we're pretty excited about it.  That being said, I don't think my kids have had a full week of school since January.  Between snow days and PA days and holidays it feels like they're never in school!!!  Oh well.  I also consider March break to be the end of winter in Southern Ontario.  This year, I may be off a bit.  We still have enough snow on the round and it's freezing outside!!  Hopefully by next week things start to change!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill.  Amy is our resident elements expert.  She can create the most intriguing cards.  I just love them.  Head over to her blog to check them out!

Amy's sketch is great!  I started out with different flowers and leaves and other things and finally realized I needed to get out my trusted favourite - Botanical Builders!  I just couldn't help it!  I love those flowers so much!

I opted to add in some purple to this card since I do love a good purple card!  I embossed the purple panel with the Pinewood Planks embossing folder to give it a bit of texture.  I wanted to use some DSP of some sort but couldn't find any that I liked!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant, White Glimmer
Stamps: The Inside Scoop - Birthday (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Other: Botanical Builders Dies, Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Glimmer Dots, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the amazing cards the girls have created for your inspiration!  They are truly creative ladies!

Have a fantastic day!



  1. I love the white on white on this pretty card! It is clean and oh so pretty. Glad the circles didn't scare you off. :)

  2. Beautiful card, Jen! I love everything from the bold, layered flowers to the touches of glitter and shine.

  3. You do such wonderful things with these flowers and this card is another example of elegant and striking!

  4. Love the elegance of your white flowers and purple background, Jen. So, so pretty! This is definitely an example of less is more!

  5. What pretty colors and these flowers are perfect for the sketch.

  6. I love the dimension in those flowers. They are lovely with just the tiny splashes of Eggplant!

  7. I love the way the flowers are layered white on white. And the Elegant Eggplant is a great accent color!
