Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #416

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great week!  It's hard to believe that Christmas is only a week away!  Eek!  Are you ready?  I had been doing really well but my bronchitis came back with a vengeance and I am back on some antibiotics, an inhaler and some rest.  Hoping this clears up quickly!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our challenge this week is a three week challenge so you have some extra time to work on your cards!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Amy O'Neill!  Amy is a colour and texture queen!  I just love her cards!  Head over to her blog to check them out!

I apologize for the dark picture and I'm going to attempt to take a better one tomorrow.  I was waiting for a bright, sunny day to take the picture but was resting yesterday afternoon and missed my window of opportunity.  Anyhow, I'll try and update it at some point!!!

I used the dot paper from the brights 6X6 DSP pack.  I originally didn't have an embossed panel but decided after the fact that it needed a little something so took the card apart and embossed the panel with the hammered metal embossing folder.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Gorgeous Grape
DSP: Brights 6X6 Paper Stack
Stamps: Essential Sentiments (MFT)
Ink: Basic Black
Other: Hammered Metal Embossing Folder, Botanical Builders Framelits, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll take a few minutes to hop on over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team ladies have created!

Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  2. How in the world do you create gorgeous cards like this when you are so sick?! The flowers are some of my favorites and I love the texture!! Hope you have a very merry Christmas!!

  3. You make the prettiest cards with these flowers! I love the textured panel, and the pops of purple are so pretty against the white. Hope you've kicked the bronchitis and you're ready to start the new year feeling 100%.
