Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #479


Happy Wednesday!  I completely spaced on my post today.  I usually write them the night before but a few things happened yesterday that made me think that yesterday was actually Wednesday.  My days are so mixed up.  I am hoping that at some point my brain will start working again!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the incredible Kim Singdahlsen!  Kim's cards are always so beautiful and she has the most amazing collection of stamps and dies!  Head on over to her blog to check them out!

I didn't have much time to make this card.  It came down to the wire.  I was a little stressed because I couldn't quite figure out what to do.  That's what happens when you leave it to the last minute!  I wanted to use the Pierced Blooms again because honestly, I just love them!  I thought I'd make the card black, white and silver but that didn't happen.  I finally reached for a piece of the Peony Garden DSP (which is retiring soon) and I was off to the races!


Cardstock: Basic Gray, Whisper White, Silver

DSP: Peony Garden

Stamps: Many Messages

Ink: Basic Black

Other: Pierced Blooms Dies, Messages Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks again for stopping by.  I'm so sorry that I didn't get my act together sooner and get this blog post up!  I need to do better because I'm the hostess next week!  

Please head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog page and see the beautiful cards the Design Team has come up with!

Have an amazing day!
