Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #89

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a great week so far.  It's been lovely here - a little cooler than usual BUT it's so nice to be able to sleep with the windows open!  I seem to have come down with a bit of a cold so I'm a little more tired today than usual.

Today brings us a new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  I must say, I love working with this group of ladies!  I truly feel blessed to be part of this design team and to be able to call these ladies my friends!  Today's sketch is brought to us courtesy of the fabulous Rita Wright!
I was super excited to see Rita's sketch!  At first it had me stumped but I realized I needed to get some father's day cards done and knew The Open Sea would work perfectly in this sketch!  I hope my dad doesn't mind receiving yet another Open Sea card!!!!  I do apologize for the picture quality....the lighting was terrible...

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake
DSP: Nautical Expedition
Stamps: The Open Sea, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Early Espresso, Crumb Cake,

  1. Simply fantastic!! No one could get tired of this set when the cards look like this!! Oh, and I considered our team so lucky to have you with us!! Have a great day!

  2. So sharp! Perfect for Father's Day! That background stripe looks terrific!

  3. Nice card. Love your take on the sketch. TFS

  4. That is such an awesome masculine design...the background reminds me of a Rugby shirt! Gorgeous image, perfect with the pennants! LOVE!

  5. Hey friend! I love this Father's Day card! Every time I see another gorgeous card made with this stamp set I get one step closer to owning it! I love it with the stripey DSP!

  6. We are very lucky to have YOU! :) I love our group too. And I LOVE this card. The Open Sea is a favorite of mine and I am always grabbing it when I need a manly card. It's just so easy to use. I really like the colors you used on this one. I rarely use it without a blue and it's nice to see a non-blue one. :)

  7. I'm loving this Father's Day Card Jen - you've done a wonderful job of keeping this card clean! Your Dad is going to love it!

  8. Fabulous card Jen! I love the red stripe background! Perfect Father's Day card!

  9. I love everything about this card, Jen! The combination of papers/colors is fabulous, the fussy-cut ship is perfection, and I love the way you layered the flags. LOVE this card!
