Freshly Made Sketches #361

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween!
I hope you're having a great week so far.  I'm fighting a nasty cold and will probably be the one staying in handing out candy tonight unless I feel better.  I don't often get sick but when I do I tend to be very grouchy!  The kids are excited about tonight.  Jacob is being the Black Panther and Caleb is being a giant hotdog.  Hilarious!  I'm hoping we get lots of kids so that I can get rid of all of that candy that I have!!  None left for me to eat!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Jen Mitchell!  Jen is the queen of elegant/clean and simple!  Her cards are gorgeous so head over to her blog and check it out!

Okay, so I definitely messed this sketch up!  I made this card a while ago and apparently was dreaming when I saw the sketch and then made my card.  I'm a little off.  I don't know what I was thinking!

My mom gave me Tropical Chic for my birthday and I just LOVE it!!  Such a fun set!  With this set you can totally make the most colourful cards!!  It's fantastic!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Tropical Chic
Ink: Basic Black, Lovely Lipstick, Pineapple Punch, Lemon Lime Twist, Granny Apple Green
Other: Tropical Thinlits Dies, Subtle Textured Embossing Folder, Glitter Enamel Dots, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous card the Design Team has created!  You will definitely be inspired!

Have a fabulous day!



  1. I don't think your design is off at all! In fact I think it's quite gorgeous! The colorful flowers against the black background is gorgeous!

  2. The bright colors look fabulous against the black! Classy!

  3. What a fun grouping of flowers and leaves - I love how they pop on the black!

  4. I love these pretty pops of color against the black background! And I love how you've cut out the sentiment. Beautifully done, Jen!

  5. Its nice to have a tropical theme when its so cold and chilly outside (you think its subliminal as you are suffering a cold?) - I sure hope you get better soon. Hope you had lots of kids and that candy got gone for you! Your card is super.

  6. I love the black background and the lime green enamel dots. Gorgeous card!

  7. Those pops of colour against the black look fabulous, Jen, and I can totally see the sketch!

  8. Oh wow! That black background is so striking and really sets off your pretty leaves.
