Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #85

Happy Wednesday!  I love Wednesday's!  This week seems to have gone really slowly for some reason.  We have had some beautiful weather this week though!  I must have gotten a little too much sun at lunch with the kindergartners today!  My neck is a bit pink!  We weren't even out there that long!

So we have a fabulous new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  This week's sketch comes from the uber talented Narelle Farrugia!  Narelle is the queen of fabulous layers on her cards!!!  This weeks' sketch threw me - even more than last week's!  I wasn't sure what to do!
I decided to use my Quint-Essential Flower stamp!  I do love this stamp and what you can do with it.  I then combined it with this week's Dynamic Duos colours!  Who doesn't love Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze!  I am still quite upset that this beautiful colour will be retiring...

I used the brand new A Round Array stamp set.  I do love it!  The centre of the Quint-Essential stamp isn't another scalloped circle but I thought this would work well for what I needed!  I must say this cute new stamp set is very fun!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White
DSP: Daffodil Delight Brights DSP
Stamps: Quint-Essential Flower, A Round Array
Ink: Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight
Other: Basic Rhinestones, Daffodil Delight Seam Binding, Dimensionals, Scalloped Circle Punches, 1" Circle Punch

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Jen, Your card is gorgeous. I just love this weeks Dynamic Duo color palette.

  2. Love how you've combined our challenge colors with kraft! Very pretty card. I'm so glad you joined us for this weeks challenge at Dynamic Duos and hope to see you playing along again!

  3. Wow, Jen! This card is fabulous! I love how you combined the two challenges, and this is such a cheerful, pretty card and I think the two stamp sets work exceptionally well together. The bling is perfect, too!

  4. I love it Jen! Great colors - love blue and yellow - and great stamp! I need to dig mine out and use it more. Sigh, so many stamps, so little time! And I love the pretty yellow bow too!

  5. Fabulous job on this card Jen! I love how the image pops off the crumb cake background. The ribbon is a nice touch, fabulous little bow! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Dynamic Duos, we sure hope to see you back again soon :)

  6. I love these colors against Crumb Cake! This is so pretty!

  7. Pretty! Everything looks great with Crumb Cake I think, but Daffodil Delight and Baja Breeze make it extra special! Love the ring o' bling around the flower too! And hey, don't forget the sunscreen!

  8. What a pretty card, Jen! I love your perfect bow, and these colors are so happy and fresh.

  9. It doesn't look like you struggled at all Jen - this is totally beautiful and totally clean! These bright colours look fabulous with crumb cake and your bow is perfect!
