Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #150

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a great week!  We are on "vacation" this week!  I would say it's more like a stay-cation so far!  We are gearing up for a big vacation adventure next week and will be heading on a road trip!  I'm so excited!  One of the highlights will be meeting up with Freshly Made Sketches' design team member Jennifer Timko!  I can't wait!

Today brings us a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  The amazing Linda Callahan brings us today's beauty!  You can head on over to her blog and check out the incredible cards she comes up with!

I had visions of this card in my head and it took a few go's at it before I actually got something I was happy with!  Part of the problem is that my craft room is a disaster.  I mean, it looks like a bomb went off in it.  I haven't had much time to actually clean it up lately so it's been a dumping ground for everything.  Once the boys are back in school it will become priority #1!

I love the new Bright and Beautiful stamp set!  It's in the new Holiday Mini Catalogue!  It will be available for customers August 28th!  This fabulous stamp set coordinates perfectly with the Star Framelits!  Who doesn't love coordination!  I added some of the fabulous new Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon and some sequins and voila!

Cardstock: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Champagne Glimmer
Stamps: Bright and Beautiful
Ink: Versamark, Cherry Cobbler
Other: Gold Sequins, Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Star Framelits, Cherry Cobbler Sheer Linen Ribbon

Thanks for stopping by today!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the beautiful cards the design team has created for your viewing pleasure!

I hope you have a fabulous day!

I know exactly what you mean about when it gets built up, it's hard to relax and create, but sometimes you just can't help it. I hope you get a little "me time" before you jump into cleaning. :)
