Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #272

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  Can you believe that it's almost the end of January?!  Where does time go?  I need to start getting ready for Valentine's Day! I don't necessarily go all out but there are a few cards that need to be finished!  It will be here before we know it!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  Our hostess this week is the lovely Cecile Ribon!  Cecile is the queen of "elements"!  She always has the loveliest die cuts or sequins or whatever else on her cards!  I love them!  Check out her blog and you'll see exactly what I mean!

Now, I can imagine that you saw this sketch and laughed thinking "oh Jen, is going to love that"!  Shockingly no one on the Design Team commented on all the circles!!!  To my surprise, I knew right away what I wanted to do.  I love the circle dies from Lil Inkers and couldn't wait to get those out and some of my favourite colours of cardstock.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Melon Mambo, Rich Razzleberry, Daffodil Delight, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
Stamps: Birthday Greetings (MFT)
Ink: Stazon
Other: Pierced Rectangle Frames (MFT), Double Stitched Circles (Lil Inkers), Stitched Flags (MFT), Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the gorgeous cards the Design Team has created for you!  We can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!
