Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #132

Happy Wednesday!  I can't believe it's Wednesday already!  We here in Ontario were some shocked to wake up to snow this morning!  Let's just say no one in our house was impressed...least of all me!  The winter stuff had been washed and was waiting to be put away.  The kids came home muddy and messy so all the winter stuff was washed again because they'll need it tomorrow!!!  Oh the joys of winter/spring!

We have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  I am so honoured to be this week's hostess!  I sure love being part of this great team of ladies!  It's fun to create sketches and to see the beautiful cards you come up with!
I saw the great colours at Dynamic Duos this week and decided that they would work perfectly for an Easter card!   Who doesn't love these two colours together!

Unfortunately the picture didn't turn out as well as expected.  We don't always get the best lighting in our house and I haven't purchased a light box yet...

As I'm staring at this card I am thinking about the time before I actually owned a corner rounder.  I used to use a nickel and trace it and then cut the corners!  Boy how times have changed!!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron
Stamps: Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Wisteria Wonder
Other: Daisy Die, Basic Rhinestones, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Modern Mosaic Textured Embossing Folder, Bakers Twine, Vintage Faceted Buttons, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to see the fabulous cards the Clean Team has come up with!  You won't be disappointed!

Have a fabulous day!



  1. Yep snow here too today! Enough already! Your sketch is so cute this week and I love your card.......great pop of yellow!

  2. I woke up to snow too this morning. Boo. But in happier news, I LOVE this card! So simple and sweet and the layered flower is beautiful! Thanks for the great sketch this week!

  3. Here in upstate NY we woke to snow on the ground too:( :(. I love your layered bloom! Looks so fresh against the embossed white bg!

  4. These are perfect colors for an Easter card! And I love the flower you've made. I'm glad you now have a corner rounder punch -- it made me smile picturing you using a nickel. Very creative! Thanks for the fun sketch, Jen!

  5. This is a beautiful card!! Love the use of the EF, the daisy die and the button center! Thanks for playing along with us at the Dynamic Duos:-)

  6. This is such a pretty card, Jen. I love the clean simplicity of the flower on the white embossed background. That's funny about the corner-rounder. Where there's a will, there's a way!

  7. What a beautiful card,Jen!! Great Sketch!! Love the colors and the pretty flower!!
    Couldn't imagine waking up to snow around this time of year! :/ We hardly had any snow here in Germany this winter.

  8. Snow here in Alberta, too, Jen - hope the sun begins shining soon! Great sketch, and your card is absolutely lovely! Looking forward to playing (although the one I've made is, ummm..'different'...hope it fits the criteria!). Pretty, cheery, inspiring!

  9. This is a fabulous sketch, Jen and I love your card! The white space is a perfect backdrop for that gorgeous flower!

  10. Love the sketch and your card, Jen!

  11. This is absolutely gorgeous Jen! Your flower is just stunning and I love all the texture you've added!
