Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #137

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed celebrating Caleb's birthday with my mom and dad - complete with an ice cream cake with an F-18 Hornet on top!  Caleb actually turns 8 today!  I can't believe that my sweet baby boy is 8 already!  Where does the time go?

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Jen Mitchell is our snazzy hostess this week.  Her cards are absolutely amazing and if you haven't seen them before, you need to head on over there and check them out!  

I did try and create my card landscape style...I really did.  I just got so frustrated.  I couldn't get the card to work so I rotated the sketch.  I'm not usually such a rebel!

I cracked open some of my sneak peek goodies to make this card!  I am not too sure how I feel about the new In Colours yet but they are growing on me!  I do love the new DSP pack and how the Hello Honey and Blackberry Bliss look together!

Cardstock: Basic Grey, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White
DSP: Moonlight DSP Stack
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Blackberry Bliss
Other: Beautiful Wings Embosslit, Bitty Banners Framelits, Basic Rhinestones, Honeycomb Textured Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!
Please hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the beautiful cards the Clean Team has created for you!  You won't be disappointed!

Have a fabulous day!



  1. Great colors and patterns on this Jen!

  2. The sketch looks great rotated! Worked perfectly for those butterflies!pretty and summery!

  3. Beautifully done, Jen! I'm loving this color combo. I am afraid of purples, but I think I could maybe handle Blackberry Bliss with the yellow and gray. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. I love the colours together. Lovely Card!

  5. I am in love with these papers and colors!! LOVE the butterflies with the embossing!! Beautiful,Jen!!!

  6. Oh you rebel, says the snazzy hostess! I adore this card with these great colors, patterns and my favorite thing: butterflies and bling!

  7. I love the rotated sketch, Jen and your card is fab! The contrast of the bling against those dark butterflies is gorgeous!

  8. I love your flip on the sketch! The hexagon background is perfect for that DSP…..and I love the butterflies of course.

  9. This is such an awesome card, Jen! I love the colors and the butterflies!

  10. Ooooo, I like this one on its side! What a great idea to use the butterflies with that banner sentiment...great motion! :)

  11. This card is so gorgeous! I love the dramatic color scheme and the butterflies are so awesome with the honeycomb print. I'm already in love with the new colors, and I am usually the last to embrace them.

  12. Such a gorgeous card, I love these colours together :-)
