Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #438

Happy Wednesday and welcome to June!!!  Can you believe it's June?!  I know a lot of you have kids that are already done school and enjoying their summer break.  My Canadian kids will be grinding out this distance learning thing until almost the end of the month.  Let's just say now that the golf course is open, there isn't a whole lot of motivation to do school work!  Only a few more weeks!

We have a great new sketch today at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the super creative, colouring genius Karren Johnson.   You will definitely want to head on over to her blog and check out her gorgeous designs!

When I first saw the sketch and that giant diamond, I tried to figure out what I could use.  Then the sunflowers struck!  I just love those new Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set and the dies from Stampin' Up.  At first I didn't like them and I was a little disappointed they were part of pre-order.  Now, I just want to use them all day long!!!  So, I apologize in advance for how many sunflower cards you're going to see!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Mossy Meadow
DSP: In Good Taste DSP, World of Good Specialty
Stamps: Celebrate Sunflowers
Ink: Stazon Black (not sure why I didn't use Early Espresso!)
Other: Sunflower Dies, Tasteful Texture Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog to check out the cards the Design Team created for your inspiration!

Have an amazing day!
