Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #623

Hello and Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week and celebrating Heart Day well!  I will be celebrating with my kids tonight.  Then I'll be taking my youngest to a soccer practice!  I hope the coaches wives weren't expecting a romantic night because their husbands are going to be coaching a bunch of teen boys instead!

We've got a brand new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Linda Callahan!  Linda is always so creative and her cards are so pretty so head over to her blog to send her some love!  

Linda has a fantastic sketch for us.  I haven't really thought about ovals in a really long time.  I sat there stumped for a while and then remembered that my Lovely Layers Hydrangea was an ovular shape so I opted to use that.  I then realized that as much as I liked the yellow I should really try it in pink so I made another one!  I decided to throw a Happy Mother's Day on them because if I don't start now I might not get those Mother's Day cards done!

Cardstock: Hammermill White Coverstock, Daffodil Delight, Blushing Bride, Gold Foil, Rose Gold Foil
Ink: Tattered Rose, Scattered Straw, Fossilized Amber (all Distress Oxides)
Other: Lovely Layers Hydrangea (Honey Bee Stamps), Dainty Diamonds Textured Embossing Folder, Happy Parents Day (Spellbinders), Glimmer Hot Foil Machine (Spellbinders), Gold Foil (Spellbinders), Rose Gold Foil (Spellbinders), Gilded Gems (SU), Iridescent Rhinestones (SU), Wink of Stella.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and join in our challenge this week!  You have until next Monday at 3 PM EST to get your card in our challenge!

If you need some inspiration, you will definitely find it on the blog!  There are some beautiful cards posted by the Design Team!  Those ladies always amaze me!

We can't wait to see what you create this week!
Have an amazing day!
