Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #263

Happy Wednesday!  Can you believe we're midway through November already?!  How does that happen?!  I hope you've started your Christmas shopping.  I've slowly started mine and am trying to get things now before the shelves get emptied and picked over!  Sometimes it's easier said than done though!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches today.  Our hostess this week if our fabulous French designer Cecile Ribon!  Cecile makes beautiful cards and you need to head over to her blog to check out those gorgeous creations!

Now, I need three cards this week.  It's already Wednesday and only one is done.  I'm doing really well!  This is the first card I need so thankfully it's done.  I'm part of a bootcamp "group".  We have class every Wednesday and sometimes on Sunday mornings.  One of the girls in our group is having her last chemo treatment tomorrow.  She has made it to bootcamp almost every week since her diagnosis. We are so proud of her and amazed by her strength.  We have a little surprise for her tomorrow to congratulate her on this accomplishment!

This sketch did stump me.  It wasn't even the circles, it was that bottom panel.  I won't tell you how many "draft" versions are sitting on my desk.  The creativity sure hasn't been flowing lately.

Cardstock: Basic Grey, Smokey Slate, Whisper White
DSP: A Little Foxy DSP Stack
Stamps: Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Versamark
Other: Bitty Banners Dies, Botanical Builders Dies, Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Wink of Stella, Basic Rhinestones, Silver Embossing Powder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out all the fabulous cards the Design Team has created for you!

Have a great day!



  1. I'm so sorry my sketch gave you hard time! Your card is absolutely gorgeous ! I love so much these pretty white flowers on the embossed background!

  2. See you did know what to do with those circles! Love the white flowers with the gray!

  3. That bottom panel stumped me for a bit, too, Jen. But you overcame beautifully and created a gorgeous card. And kudos to your bootcamp friend - what an achievement.

  4. What pretty colors on this. Love the flowers.

  5. My bottom panel had a mind of it's own! LOL! Glad you persevered through all those drafts because this is gorgeous! I love the neutral color palette!

  6. What a wonderful spray of white flowers - perfect on the gray woodgrain!
