Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #271

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  It was a super rainy day here yesterday.  We don't have any snow left.  As much as I don't like snow, rain in the winter seems worse.  It was a dreary day so hopefully we'll have some sun today!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess this week is the incredibly talented Cindy Hall!  Cindy makes beautiful cards.  You need to head over to her blog and check them out!
I really do love the colours in this Carried Away DSP!  It's currently available as a Sale-A-Bration item!  Who doesn't like getting something free?!  I used some Reverse Confetti stamps here and the "fabulous" had originally embossed with silver embossing powder.  I didn't really like how it looked. As pretty as the silver is, it just didn't stand out enough so I ended up using a die to cut out the Fabulous and adding it on top.  It needed a few little sequins and I called it a day!

Cardstock; Whisper White, Watermelon Wonder, Night of Navy, Silver
DSP: Carried Away (SU)
Stamps: You're So (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Sequins (SU), You're So Confetti Cuts (Reverse Confetti), Dimensionals

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

Have a fabulous day!
