Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #259

Hope you're having a great week so far!  We have had some great weather here.  You'd almost think it was summer!  The leaves on the trees are beautiful and with the gorgeous sunshine it's amazing!  I guess this is why I love fall!!!

Today we have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the super talented Linda Callahan!  Linda makes such fun cards!  I love them!  You'll have to head over to her blog and check them out!

Now, there is a big ol' circle on this card.  Circles aren't as scary these days but overall I struggled to come up with a fabulous idea for this card.  My craft room is a disaster and will soon be torn apart to do some repairs so I'm feeling less than creative!

I do love my pineapple stamps from Concord & 9th.  I decided that they would work for this card!  I started with just a plain white background but it was too boring so I added some embossed polka dots!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Stamps: Pop Art Pineapple
Ink: Versamark, Melon Mambo
Other: Pop Art Pineapple Dies, Double Stitched Circles, Wink of Stella, Basic Rhinestones, Polka Dot Textured Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team has created for you!  You will love them!

Have a fabulous day!
