Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #441

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week.  Yesterday was supposed to have been our oldest son's Grade 8 Graduation.  Hard to believe in March when we went into lockdown we thought it would all be over in a few weeks.  It won't be the day he was supposed to have but we'll take a few photos of Caleb outside and have some cake with our neighbours, whose son is also graduating!  I still remember Caleb's first day of Junior Kindergarten like it was yesterday and here we are almost 10 years later!  I can't even imagine how fast high school will fly by!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the super creative Judy Rozema!  Judy's cards are always beautiful and super bright and cheery!  Head on over to her blog and check them out!

So let's just say that this card could be perfect with a sunflower!!!  BUT I spared you this week!  I've moved onto peonies (but don't worry, I might make another card using this sketch and some sunflowers!).  I love the new peony dies!  I did have to watch a tutorial on how to use them though.  I opened the package and almost gave up!!!  Once you make them, you realize how easy peasy they are!

Cardstock: Whipser White, So Saffron, Grey Granite
DSP: Peony Garden DSP
Stamps: Itty Bitty Birthdays
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Dainty Diamonds Embossing Folder, Peony Dies, Elegant Faceted Gems, Sweetly Stitched Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll pop over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team have created.

Have an amazing day!
