Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #437

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a good week!  We're having a crazy hot week here.  2 weeks ago we had snow and now we're melting!  I won't complain, it's better than winter!  Our boys have been able to get out for a few rounds of golf which is helping them from being too bored!  Our kids are doing online school until the end of June so we have a while to go!  Golf is providing a much needed distraction.

We have a fun new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is our incredibly talented and French designer Cecile Ribon!  Cecile is our die cut master.  Head over to her blog and you'll see what I'm talking about!
I must say I was a little challenged with the sketch.  Those wiggly rectangles might have thrown me a bit.  I had to dig deep with this one.  This is not my first card (I'm sure you already knew that!).  Needless to say I ended up with some butterflies.  I tried my first splotches on this card as well!  Let's say I'm going to need some practice!!!

Cardstock: Whipser White, Gorgeous Grape, Silver Foil
Stamps: The Inside Scoop - Birthday (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Stazon Black, Gorgeous Grape
Other: In Flight Overlays (Taylored Expressions), Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder

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 girls have come up with!

Have an amazing day!
