Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #358

Happy Wednesday!  I'm super proud of myself for remembering to get this post done!  I seriously can't believe that I forgot the last two weeks in a row!  I'm getting in the groove around here so it's getting easier to remember things!  We're having some gorgeous weather here today and I totally don't want it to end.  It's been super humid but I don't mind - I know what's coming so I'll take a couple more days of this summer weather!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of the amazing Karren Johnson.  Karren's our New Zealand demonstrator (who I totally want to visit) and she makes gorgeous cards.  She makes beautiful backgrounds and colours like a queen!  Check out her blog to be amazed!

So I'm pretty sure Karren tried to do me in with this sketch.  There are 4 circles on this sucker.  4.  I didn't quite know where to start.  Then I thought it reminded me of a wreath.  I started with a Christmas wreath and that went disastrously.  Did not turn out at all so I tried a heart with some flowers and that didn't work so this is where we ended up.  I'm totally happy with it and must say red and grey make my heart flutter a bit!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Grey, Cherry Cobbler
Stamps: Sweet Celebration (Lil' Inkers)
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Black
Other: Pinewood Planks Embossing Folder, Warm Welcome Dies (Lil' Inkers), Pretty Pines Thinlits, Black Rhinestons, 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 cards the Design Team has created.  You will totally be inspired!

Have a fabulous day!


  1. You handled those circles perfectly! Pretty wreath! And I am enjoying the last bit of summer weather as well!

  2. Mwah hah hah, yes this sketch was part of my evil plan to make you face your fear of circles :) Just kidding! I think you coped admirably with all these circles and came up with a gorgeous card in fabulous colours!

  3. You have nailed the 4 circles on your card Jen! You have created one gorgeous card (like I knew you would!).

  4. Your wreath inspired mine so what more can I say! Except I'll say that those flowers are very pretty, and the embossed background too. Not to mention the die cut sentiment. I guess you could say I love this!
