Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #274

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're all having a great week so far!  Anyone else having some super weird weather? We have almost no snow - and today it poured rain.  I mean, it poured.  Ugh.  Nothing worse than rain in February.  Last week I had 10 robins hanging out in my front tree.  I don't know what they were thinking and I am hoping they were just stopping over on their way to Florida.

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches.  I have the honour of being this week's hostess.  I always get a little nervous when it's my turn to come up with a sketch.  I'm not really creative and I do find it challenging to come up with something that I think will work!  I'm hoping you enjoy what I've come up with!

I need to restock my birthday cards and so decided to combine the Botanical Builders from Stampin Up and the "You're So" stamp set and dies from Reverse Confetti.  I went with yellow and green which totally aren't colours I would normally pick but they jumped out at me and stuck!

Cardstock: Basic Black, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, Gumball Green, Black Glimmer (Michaels)
Stamps: You're So (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: Botanical Builder Dies (SU), You're So Confetti Cuts, Mini Banner Punch (SU), Basic Rhinestones, Softly Falling TIEF, Dimensionals

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

Have a great day!


  1. Your pop of yellow on black looks fabulous!

  2. I love that black background! And this sketch was a joy to work with. Love it!

  3. Well this card is fabulous! Love how elegant it is with the black background and beautiful flower! Thanks for a great sketch this week!

  4. We're having weird summer weather over here, so it must be global! Hot, hot 30 degrees one day then cold and a frost 2 days later! A frost! In the middle of summer! But I digress, both your card and the sketch are just fabulous! I love the bold look to your card and the sketch is so versatile (sorry I butchered it!)

  5. Gorgeous Cards! I love the background and the simple background!

  6. Oh, I do love a card that showcases black like this. That background really makes the flowers and leaves pop!

  7. Such a pretty card Jen! That blossom is beautiful! Love the textured background!

  8. Love the yellow against the black. Such a pretty card!
