Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #418
Happy Wednesday and welcome to the MIDDLE of January! Can someone please explain to me how that happened? Wasn't it just Christmas?! We've had amazing "winter" weather so far and I'm totally pumped that true winter may only feel like two months instead of 6! Hopefully it doesn't last much longer than that!!! I apologize for no card last week. I totally spaced on that one. I made my card all excited and went to post it and realized my card didn't look like everyone else's. I had used the wrong sketch. Needless too say, I was good and ready for this week!!!
We have a great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week! Our hostess is the amazing Jacquie Southas! Jacquie's cards are always amazing! Head over to her blog to check them out!
So I knew I wanted to use the new SU honey bee stamp for this card. I just love it! Plus the DSP from the Sale-a-bration catalogue is fantastic! I just love bees!!
I must say I struggled making this card. I couldn't get it to be the way I wanted it or the way I thought it would look and it definitely looks better in person than it photographed.
Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Gold Foil
DSP: Golden Honey Specialty DSP
Stamps: Honey Bee
Ink: Versamark, Basic Black
Other: Detailed Bees Dies, Gold Embossing Powder, Subtle Texture Embossing Folder, Itty Bitty Banner Dies
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you have the chance to head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created! You'll definitely be inspired!
Have an amazing day!
