Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #278

Happy Wednesday!  I hope your week has started well!  It's felt like spring here the last two days though there is some cold weather and snow in the long range forecast.  I think I'm done with snow.  I am not a big fan of cold either!  I must be getting old or something!!!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jen Mitchell!  I love, love, love Jen's cards.  She is so creative and makes CAS look so incredible!  Head over to her blog and you'll see exactly what I mean!

I wasn't too sure what I wanted to do with this sketch.  It's a great one and I had a few ideas but settled on using a new stamp set that I got this week.  I love the new Sweet Celebrations stamp set and dies from Lil' Inkers.  Who doesn't love a heart wreath and some beautiful flowers?!

I guess I kinda deviated from the sketch a little bit.  My "shape" is a tad bit big!  I hope the girls don't mind!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Watermelon Wonder, Whisper White, Basic Grey, Smokey Slate
Stamps: Sweet Celebrations (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Watermelon Wonder, Pool Party, Blushing Bride, Cucumber Crush , Stazon Black, Versamark
Other: Sweet Celebrations Dies, White Embossing Powder, Softly Falling TIEF, Celebrate Word Die, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

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

Have a fabulous day!
