Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #308

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you’re having a great week!  I hope my fellow Canadian friends had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We had a lovely weekend and our turkey was so yummy!  Unfortunately my laptop died or has developed some health issues and won’t turn on!  Needless to say, doing this post from my iPad is proving to be a little more frustrating than I had anticipated!

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  Our hostess this week is the amazing Rita Wright!  Rita is a colouring queen!  Her marker manipulating abilities far exceed anything I’ll ever be capable of!!!

I love sunflowers and wanted to this amazing DSP on a card!  I find that sunflowers always make me smile.  I added some burlap ribbon and a tiny little sunflower. There are some gold sequins on there too!  

Cardstock: Early Espresso, Garden Green, Whisper White, Crushed Curry
DSP:Painted Leaves
Stamps: So Very Special
Ink: Early Espresso
Other: Gold Sequins, burlap ribbon, bitty flower punch, 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 your inspiration!  You won’t be disappointed!  

Have a fabulous day!


  1. Your card is gorgeous. Love the paper and the flower. Great sentiment.

  2. That background paper is the perfect frame for your sentiment! Pretty fall card!

  5. I love that giant sentiment! And that little flower is such a sweet accent. A pretty and happy card perfect for a birthday.

  6. I hope your laptop is feeling better. I never was able to revive mine; they are so finicky sometimes. I love your beautiful sunflowers. They are my absolute favorite and you made them look stunning!

  7. This is lovely! The paper is gorgeous and I love that I can see so much of it. The simple sentiment and the strip of ribbon is just the right touch!

  8. Such a pretty card Jen! Love the beautiful sunflower background and pretty little flower embellishment! The strip of fabric adds such a nice touch! Thanks for the inspiration!

  9. This card is just wonderful! I haven't seen that sentiment, but it made me smile when I read it! I love the earthy feel to your card with the colours and paper you've used.
