Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #164

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe it's Wednesday already?!  Where has the week gone?  December is creeping up so fast!  I do believe that Christmas is less than a month away!  Are you ready?  I'm not quite there yet!  I think this weekend we will try and get the Christmas tree up!  Still seems too early for some reason though!

We have a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  I have the privilege of being this week's hostess!  I always have a hard time coming up with a sketch! I wanted a sketch that would be clean and versatile.  Sometimes that's easier said than done!

I have a few more nature themed cards to work on and I wanted to get out my Pleasant Poppies stamp set.  I love those poppies.  I think I need to use them more often.  They always strike me as so regal.

I don't have any cherry cobbler blendabilities yet and I don't have any copics and me and a blender pen don't get along very well so this card involved me cutting out those poppies.  What I've learned from this is that I don't see as well at night as I would like!!!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Real Red
Stamps: Pleasant Poppies, Perfect Pennants
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Banners Framelits, Basic Black Taffeta Ribbon, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the other beautiful cards the design team has created for you!

Have a fabulous day!
