Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #280

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week so far!  I missed last week's challenge because I was visiting my parents for the March break!  We had the coldest March break ever!  I guess winter isn't quite ready to say goodbye despite me being totally ready to let go!!!  

We have a great sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the fabulous Linda Callahan!  Linda makes the cutest cards and has such a great sense of humour!  Her blog will definitely make you smile!

I knew I wanted to use the Botanical Builders on this card.  I just love them.  Of course you know how I feel about white and black cards!  I wasn't sure how this would come together but I think I'm happy!  I also may have added some Wink of Stella to the middle layer of the flowers!  The leaves are embossed with silver embossing powder j to give a bit of shine!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Silver
Stamps: LJD Birthday Greetings (MFT)
Ink: Stazon Black, Versamark
Other: Botanical Builders Dies, Lacy Scalloped Confetti Cut Die (Reverse Confetti), Silver Embossing Powder, Silver Sequins, 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 have created.  You will not be disappointed!

Have a fabulous day!



  1. The white and silver is amazing and that pop of black from the framing is a perfect touch!

  3. You should definitely be happy with this card! The touches of black are perfect and the white texture looks fabulous!

  5. This is such a pretty card, Jen! That frame of black scallops is gorgeous, and I love the white on white.

  6. So elegant! I love the white on white and the border just makes it pop! Love this card Jen!

  7. This is amazing! Every time I try to do a white on white card the results are disastrous! I love the black scallops around the border. I think I may have to go check out that die!
