Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #161

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe it's Wednesday already!  I'm sorry I missed playing along with Freshly Made Sketches last week.   Can you believe we're are into November already?!  How on earth did that happen?  The weeks are flying by!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of our fabulous Linda Callahan.  Linda makes such beautiful cards so you are going to want to go and check out her blog!
The Christmas season is approaching far too quickly.  I have realized too quickly that I will not have my cards ready if I don't get my act together!  I need to be creating a few more of these this week!

I tried the sketch using the orientation that Linda has designed but I just couldn't get it to work.  Once I turned it, I seemed to be able to create a card I actually liked!  I made a different one as well that I will share tomorrow!  I was having some issues with my cherry cobbler ink so I decided to use embossing powder instead.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Bright and Beautiful
Ink: Versamark
Other: Cherry Cobbler Embossing Powder, Silver Taffeta Ribbon, Basic Rhinestones, Stars Framelits, Dimensionals.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you are able to head to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the beautiful cards the Design Team has created for your inspiration.  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a fabulous day!
