Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #383

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a fantastic week so far!  It's been a good week here!  I went for a walk last night and was encouraged to see the tulips starting to grow and the robins yanking juicy worms from the ground.  The golf course is open - though it's awfully wet so the boys are itching to get out golfing!!  I think they may have to wait a little while longer!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jen Mitchell!  Jen makes the most gorgeous cards!  She is the queen of clean cards!  I adore her clean style!  Maybe when I grow up I'll be able to create cards like her!!!

Jen's sketch this week is so fun!  I have a little confession to make though.  I don't just struggle with circles, I struggle with all little shapes!  That square may as well had been a circle!  I decided to totally rebel and go with some sunshine and clouds instead!  The sun and clouds are some of my favourite dies ever!!!  I used the Ruffled embossing folder for the sky - though I probably should have used one with clouds on it!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Balmy Blue, Daffodil Delight
Stamps:  Shine Bright (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Black Memento
Other: Ruffled Dynamic Embossing Folder, Sun 'n Cloud Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), 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 for your inspiration!  They are are incredible!  I'm so fortunate to get to work with such a talented group of ladies each and every week!

Have an amazing day!



  1. I love this happy card! And I love this embossing folder for the sky -- it makes me think of a nice breeze on a sunny day.

  2. Ahhh sunshine...I am ready for it! Sweet the "ruffled" sky!

  3. This is a perfect take on the sketch!! I LOVE the use of the cloud for the scalloped edge!!

  4. Ha! I don't think you struggle with shapes at all! This is fantastic! And it makes me long for the sunny, hot days of summer!

  5. I like what came out of your rebellion!!!

  6. Jen, this card amazes me! It is die cut and CAS perfection! AND it is an absolutely fabulous take on the sketch!
