Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #393

Happy Wednesday! I hope you're having a great week!  We finally have some relatively warm weather which is fantastic!  I still haven't worn shorts yet but that's because I'm always cold!!!  Actually, I don't really own shorts anymore!  I've progressed to skorts!  I guess I'm officially old!  Anyhow, we're almost done school here.  We like to drag it out as long as possible to torture kids and parents!  My boys checked out about a week ago so they're finding it hard to focus all day at school!  Oh the joys of June!

Anyhow, we have a fantastic sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of the amazingly talented Lee Ann Barrett!  I just love Lee Ann's cards!  She creates the most beautiful scenes and her colouring is fantastic.  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I kinda knew what I wanted to do for this card.  Of course there was a first edition and a second edition and then I settled on this one!  This cake was sitting on my desk from a previous attempt at a card so I decided I couldn't get it go to waste!  You never let cake go to waste!

It wasn't until I uploaded my card to the Design Team site that I realized I had my sentiment in the wrong place.  Sorry ladies.  I didn't even realize.  Hopefully they'll forgive me!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Early Espresso, Kraft
Stamps: Inside Scoop (Taylored Expressions)
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Build a Cake Dies (Taylored Expressions), Scalloped Edge Die, Wink of Stella, Sequins (Taylored Expressions)

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

Have an incredible week!



  1. Your cake is so fun! I love this.
    And cake can never go to waste.

  2. Your sentiment is perfect where it is! Yummy card!

  3. I absolutely love this, Jen! What is not to like- it's all great! The colors, the fantastic dies, and of course, CAKE! Love your style!

  4. That's one of my favorite sentiments!! And isn't that cake just so much fun to build! I LOVE it in browns. From a design standpoint, it puts all the focus on the little details instead of colors - but really I'm just seeing lots of chocolate!

  5. Love all the chocolatey goodness on your cake, Jen!
