Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #471



Happy Wednesday crafting world!  I hope you're having a great week!  I hope those of you who were hit with the snowstorm earlier in the week are digging out!  I don't think we'll be getting it.  Sometimes we get the tail end but I think this time it's going to miss us!  I won't complain!  We're also hoping to hear today if our kids can go back to school this week.  Some kids in our province have headed back to school but our board has not.  We're hoping for next week.  My youngest isn't loving online school and really needs to be back with his friends.  I guess we'll just wait and see and then make the best of whatever happens!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the incredible Karren Johnson!  Karren is truly amazing and not only makes incredible cards, she is a truly incredible person!  I really do hope that I'm able to actually meet her in person one day!  


So I knew I wanted to use my "Wreath Builders" dies for this card.  It took me a few tries to get this to work.  I couldn't put the circle with the sentiment right on the bottom, I had to put it between the two wreath pieces.  Of course I had to use my Pierced Blooms dies again.  I couldn't resist.  They were such a cheery addition to the card!  

Cardstock: Whisper White, Granny Apple Green, Garden Green, Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight
Stamps: Beautiful World
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Pierced Blooms Dies, Wreath Builders Dies, Wonky Frame Dies (Lil Inkers), 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 that the Design Team has created for your inspiration!

I hope you'll join in this week's challenge!

Have an amazing day!


  1. This joyful floral wreath is absolutely delightful, Jen. The two layered leafy diecuts make it even more amazing.

  2. What a bright happy card Jen! Love those pierced blooms on the side of your wreath (darn it, KNEW I should've ordered those wreath dies!) I really do feel for the children - they need to be with kids their own age don't they :/

  3. This is so beautiful and so colorful! The snow missed me too! It ended up mostly rain!

  4. I am regretting not ordering these flowers! They are beautiful with the wreath! Gorgeous card!

  5. Wow this wreath is gorgeous - so bright and cheerful! And hopefully one day, we will be able to meet in person. Wouldn't that be cool!
