Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #381

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We are slowing easing into spring here in Southern Ontario.  It's been fairly nice so far.  Not exactly warm but at least our snow has melted.  Where my parents live though (about 5 hours away), they are still loaded with snow which at the rate we're going may be there until June!!!  My boys were out on the golf course on the weekend (it's not open yet) hitting some balls around and getting in a little spring training.  Let's say they're a little rusty but thankfully it doesn't take long for them to get into the "swing" of things!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of another one of our newest team members Lee Ann Barrett!  Lee Ann's cards are just beautiful and her colouring is fantastic.  I may have to go and visit her for some colouring lessons!!!

This isn't the first card I made for this challenge.  I went back and forth a few times with different sentiments and different elements.  Nothing looked quite right.  I finally decided on this one and then put it all together and realized this isn't the sentiment I wanted to go on it.  Insert eye roll.  Seriously.  My brain hasn't been working well lately!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, White Glimmer
Paper: Paper Bliss (Reverse Confetti)
Stamps: Tall Blooms, Sentiment Essentials (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Stampin' Blends, Sentiment Essentials Confetti Cuts, Tall Blooms Confetti Cuts, Sequins (Close to my Heart), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration!  We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!


  1. Pretty pinks for spring - I am ready! And I love pink and black together!

  2. Your pinks are so pretty, and I love that fun dsp background. Such a pretty card, Jen!

  3. HI Jen! You are welcome here any time, lol! So much coloring to do, too little time! I too did more than one card with this sketch. I even got so far as to upload it to the blog and then took it back down, lol! Whether the right or wrong sentiment, I think it works perfectly with your card. The glimmer paper is a fantastic component and I love the colors!

  4. What an absolutely beautiful card! I love that patterned paper, the touch of sparkle you added with the glitter paper and sequins, and how cleverly you cut out the sentiment!

  5. Oh this is so gorgeous, Jen! That flower and the sentiment work perfectly together.
