Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #391

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week!  This week is bringing absolute craziness to our house!!!!  We have a packed schedule this week whereas normally our schedule is fairly open.  It just seems like everything decided to happen in one week!  Thankfully it's going off without a hitch so far!  Today is the school BBQ and of course they're calling for rain and thunder storms!  Fantastic!  Both boys are playing in the school bands...outside!  Should be a great day!  My youngest is supposed to be at an outdoor soccer tournament all day today as well.  We shall see if that actually happens.  Can't wait to sit on those sidelines!

We have a great new sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill!  Amy's cards are always coloured beautifully and I swear she is a watercoloring master!  I long to possess her talent!

This sketch totally stumped me!  I have no idea why!  It's not full of circles, it's not hard - I just couldn't figure out what I wanted to do.  I tried a variety of things over several days until I finally came up with a card and even now, I'm not totally satisfied but that's okay!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
DSP: Gingham
Stamps: Fall For You (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Memento Black
Other: Fall For You Confetti Cuts, Sweet Celebration Dies (Lil' Inker Designs), Celebrate Word Die (Lil' Inker Designs), Stampin Blends, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the Design Team have created!  They are definitely awe inspiring this week!

Have a fantastic day!


  1. I love this! Fresh & clean perfection, Jen! Hope the rain and thunder hold off until late evening.

  2. I love the pretty summery wreath you created! Sweet as can be!

  3. I love this card. The kraft,black pop layer,the DSP and oh, the wreath. Although I don't have all the products, I'll be CASEing this.

  4. Isn't it funny how some sketches just take awhile? Usually it's the ones I design ha! Your card is so fresh and fun!

  5. I'm not sure why you aren't satisfied with this pretty card! The colors are gorgeous and that gingham paper is cheery. This card makes me happy.

  6. I think you figured out what to do just fine! The gingham background and the wreath of flowers are beautiful!

  7. Beautiful wreath and that gingham paper is such a great look with it. Love this card, Jen!

  8. Somehow....a circle to the rescue! I adore this pretty wreath and that pretty purple gingham is lovely.

  9. Isn't it crazy when you get stumped??? And days later you could sit down and come up with a card, not even realizing it is the same sketch- at least that happens with me, lol! I think your card turned out fabulous, as they always do! We are our own worst critics.
