Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #474


Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  We had lots of snow last week but this week we're getting above freezing temperatures and some rain.  I guess that means our snow will start melting - which is okay with me.  Maybe the death trap sidewalks will become more walkable!!!  The long range forecast (which is never right, let's be honest) indicates about freezing temperatures every day.  I'm totally okay with an early spring!!!  Bring it on!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess is the amazing Judy Rozema!  Judy's cards are always so beautiful.  She sure creates some super creative cards!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I had to be a bit of rebel with this card and turn it on it's side.  I tried to make it work in portrait mode but unfortunately I didn't have the right "with sympathy" sentiment to work.  So, over it went!  Narelle used flowers like these a few weeks ago and I knew they would be perfect on my card. My colouring isn't quite as good as Narelle's but we're going to go with it!  Thankfully whoever I send this to probably won't not how good Narelle's colouring is!  I used the Crumb Cake Stampin Blends to colour the flowers.  


Cardstock: Whisper White

DSP: In Good Taste

Stamps: Forever and Always

Ink: Memento Black

Other: Always Dies, Stampin' Blends, Braided Linen Trim, Elegant Faceted Gems

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the cards that the Design Team has made!  

We can't wait to see what you create this week!

Have an amazing day!
