Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #388

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  Can you believe it's the middle of May already?!  Seems like just yesterday it was Easter!  Time is flying by.  In less than a week my oldest turns 13!  I have no idea where 13 years have gone.  The day are long but the years are short!  Isn't that how the saying goes?  I'm feeling it this week!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is our New Zealand friend Karren Johnson!  Karren is a masterful colourer and creates the most amazing cards!  I totally think I need to take a vacation in New Zealand and spend time having colouring lessons!

I'm going to be totally honest when I say those circles threw me.  Totally threw me.  You guys should see the bits and pieces on my craft room desk that are left from all the different trials!  This card took forever to come together.  Once I figured out what I was going to do, it was created fairly quickly BUT it was getting to that point that was hard!  The stamp I used was the one from my Lots of Happy Card Kit that is still sitting on my desk on the acrylic block!

Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Patterned Paper: Under the Umbrella (Reverse Confetti)
Stamps: Lots of Happy Card Kit stamps (SU), LJD Circle Scribbles (MFT Stamps Retired)
Ink: Night of Navy
Other:  LJD Circle Scribbles Dies, Double-Stitched Circle Dies (Lil Inkers), Stampin' Blends (Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive), Sequins (CTMH), Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks 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 definitely be inspired!

Have an amazing day!



  1. This is such a pretty birthday card, Jen! I'm totally in love with those gorgeous and delicate roses!

  2. So bright and cheery for spring! Looks like colorful raindrops watering the blooms!

  3. You are so welcome here any time, Jen! In the meantime, what a gorgeous card you have created. I was admiring the roses when I read your supply list and realised I actually own that set. Doh! Enjoy your boy being 13 - before you know it he'll be 21 (which is what my oldest is now.)

  4. This is so fresh and pretty! I love the colors and I love the flowers. Such a happy card!

  5. You did a great job with those always!
