Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #301

Happy Wednesday!  I hope everyone is having a great start to their week!  We are currently enjoying some R&R with Grannie and Papa!  It's been nice being able to relax and enjoy some time away from home!  We will totally enjoy these last few weeks of summer since the start of school is coming faster than I care to admit!

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I'm fortunate to be this week's hostess!  I had a card in mind when I came up with this sketch and I'm thankful that when I made it, it actually looked kinda like what I had envisioned!  Coming up with a sketch can be very nerve wracking!  You just never know how people are going to feel about it!

I had some Pop of Pink DSP sitting on my desk and I just had to use it.  I love that paper with those fabulous gold accents!  I wish I had purchased more than one pack!!!  I must say the embossing didn't go as well as I had hoped.  I may have embossed the other side as well and it looked ever worse.  I don't know what the issue is and yes, I used an embossing buddy!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold
DSP: Pop of Pink
Stamps: Sweet Celebrations (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Versamark
Other: Gold Embossing Powder, Botanical Blossoms, Celebrate Word Die (Lil Inkers), Dimensionals

Thanks again for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards that the Design Team has created for your inspiration!  You won't be disappointed!  We look forward to seeing what you create this week!

Have a fabulous day!
