Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #442

Happy Wednesday and Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canadian friends!!!  I hope you all have a wonderful day "celebrating" that we have the privilege of living in this great nation!  This year's celebrations will not look anything like what we normally do.  There are no public celebrations, there aren't gatherings.  That's okay.  We can still celebrate at home and know that we are so blessed to live in this country!!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess is the amazing Jacquie Southas!  Jacquie makes the most beautiful cards!  She always uses fun, bright colours and her cards are so cheery!  I love it!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I must say those round'ish shapes may have thrown me for a loop.  I sat and started at paper until I saw this flower sitting already coloured on my desk.  Actually, Pepsi the cat was sitting on it!  I was inspired by Jen M's all white card last week and knew I wanted to make one that was mostly white as well!

I love this new embossing folder from SU and think it's going to be one of my new go-to embossing folders!  I can't help using these peonies!  I've been making cards with them all week!  I just love them!  They're so fun and who doesn't love a peony!  I "painted" the peony with some Wink of Stella because really, every flower needs some sparkle!!

Cardstock: Whisper White
DSP: Peony Garden
Stamps: Prized Peony, Sentiment (It's one from MFT....sorry, I can't remember which one!)
Ink: Stazon Black, Memento Black
Other: Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Stampin' Blends, Double Stitched Circle Dies, Sweetly Stitched Dies, Elegant Faceted Gems, Wink of Stella, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out what the other ladies have designed!  Please join us this week as well!

Have an amazing day!
