Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #42

Happy Wednesday, Happy Independence Day to my American readers and Happy Birthday to my Father-in-law!  I hope you all have a great day celebrating!

Today also brings us our newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches!  This sketch comes to us from the fabulous Jennifer Timko!  I must say my first month on the Freshly Made Sketches design team has been fabulous!  I am so fortunate to be working with such a talented group of card makers!  Jen's sketch was fun to work with and the rectangles made my life a little easier!

I really wanted to use my "Up, Up and Away" set for this one...not sure why but it sat there so lonely looking!!!  I also wanted to get out my new Polka Dot Parade DSP.  I love polka dots so I couldn't wait to give it a try!

Just a little head's up that I won't be blogging much this week.  We have a busy week with lots going on and will need the afternoons to get some of my house work done and the evening to fill quite a few card orders!  Be sure to keep checking back though as I'll try and get a card up later in the week as my Holiday Catalogue Pre-order is scheduled to arrive tomorrow!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Marina Mist, Whisper White
DSP: Polka Dot Parade
Stamps: Up, Up and Away
Ink: Real Red, Basic Black, Bashful Blue
Other: Basic Black Scalloped Dots Ribbon, Dimensionals, Stripes Textured Embossing Folder

Thanks for stopping by!
