Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #194

Happy Wednesday!  We are into our second week of summer vacation and slowly getting into a routine and figuring things out!  The boys are looking forward to a week of camp next week and a week of spending a little bit of time apart!  I think that may be a good thing!!!  I will also be at camp leading a card making elective.  There are 75 kids that will be joining me during the day!  I have been doing a lot of paper cutting over the last few weeks and am now looking forward to being finished and meeting our group!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazing Linda Callahan!  I love Linda's wonderfully creative cards and her sense of humour!
For some reason the squares on Linda's sketch didn't scare me as much as I thought they would!  My mom had bought the Lil' Inkers square stitched dies for me for Mother's Day and I couldn't wait to get them out!  I figured they would work perfectly!  I love my Fabulous Flamingo stamp set (Reverse Confetti) and knew it would work for this card!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Stamps: Fabulous Flamingo
Ink: Stazon Black, Melon Mambo
Other: Square Stitched Dies (Lil' Inkers), Fabulous Flamingo Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Silver Taffeta Ribbon, Silver Sequins, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches Blog and check out the fabulous cards the design team has created to inspire you!  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Have a wonderful day!

  6. I love your new stitched squares! They were perfect for this week's sketch, and I'm crazy about that cute flamingo.
