Freshly Made Sketches Challenge!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We are having slightly cooler temperatures (okay, it's downright cold) right now.  After a few days of warmth, this feels very cold!  Thankfully the kids don't seem to notice and are still itching to go out and play hockey or soccer!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our fabulous hostess this week is the lovely and talented Linda Callahan!  I love Linda's cards!  Her blog is full of amazing creations!  Head over there and check it out!

I really wanted to use my Fabulous Flamingo stamp set from Reverse Confetti!  Who doesn't love a cute flamingo?!  I love flamingos!  I totally wish we lived somewhere that there had wild ones!  I would be in heaven!  

I chose to make a Bermuda Bay Flamingo!  Obviously because that would be unique right?  Caleb (my oldest) didn't quite get it.  He really thought the flamingo should be pink.  Kids!

Cardstock: Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
Stamps: Fabulous Flamingo (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Pool Party, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black
Other: Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Basic Rhinestones, Stitched Rectangle Dies (Lil' Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Please head on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the creative cards the design team has come up with!  You will be amazed!  Trust me!

Have a fabulous day!

  6. Your Bermuda Bay flamingo is unique and very cute. And I love the touches of black. Great card, Jen!

  7. Oh this truly is glorious Jen! Absolutely stunning colour combination - I am loving your blue flamingo!

  8. I love your Bermuda Bay flamingo along with that fabulous sentiment. That is so cute! All you need now are some purple palm trees and you will be in heaven!

  9. I really like the retro feel of your card with the aqua monochromatic scheme and imagery. By the way, I had to smile when I heard about your son Caleb's lack of understanding of your artistic choice to have an aqua colored flamingo. Blessings!

  10. I'm pretty much in love with this little flamingo! And it is the perfect message! Wonderful card.
