Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #431

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week so far!  We've had a few cool, dark days and they're calling for snow today.  Snow!!  We usually get one snow fall in April and since my snow tires are off, it can snow any time!!  That being said, it's not like we're really going anywhere so I guess it doesn't really matter if it snows or not!

We have a fantastic new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is one of our colouring queens, Lee Ann Barrett!  Lee Ann creates the most amazing cards so head on over to her blog and check them out!

I was apparently looking at a different sketch when I made my card.  I don't know why I thought that sentiment banner was so thick!  Oh goodness.  Sometimes I wonder what I'm doing!  I had just made a bunch of never-ending cards using the bee paper from Stampin' Up and it was all still sitting on my craft table so I decided I needed to use it again on this card.  I just love it so much.  Who doesn't love sweet little bees?!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil
DSP: Golden Honey Specialty DSP
Stamps: Honey Bee, Well, Hello (MFT)
Ink: Versamark, Memento Black
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Stampin Blends, Well, Hello dies (MFT)

Thanks again for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration!  We also hope you'll play along with our challenge this week!

Have an amazing day!


  1. I love your cute little bees. I hope they don't freeze up there though. You always make such beautiful cards with this color combo!

  2. I so love this card, this paper, the wide sentiment strip! It is just all so classy. Thanks for making the sketch look so good!

  3. I adore your take on this sketch. The gold with the black, the scallop border, the bees-beautiful design!!

  4. Bee-youtiful for sure! I love the scallops with the sentiment!

  5. You often use a black/white/gold color scheme, and I love it, your cards are always so classy. This one is no exception.
