Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #319

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you are having a great start to your week!  We finally have some much warmer temperatures here in Southern Ontario!  Last week I was in the Ottawa Valley with my parents and the temperatures dropped as low as -40 with the windchill.  It was brutally cold.  Made me so thankful for the wood stove!!!

We have a great new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches this week courtesy of one of our Texans, Rita Wright!  Rita is also one of our colouring queens!  I'm always amazed at what she can create!  I think I need to take a little adventure down to Texas to learn how to colour!!!
Rita has created such a great sketch!  This one can be interpreted in so many different ways!  I need some birthday cards so I decided to haul out my Botanical Builders and start creating.  I opted for black and white to keep the card simple.  I used my "You're So" stamp set and dies from Reverse Confetti and voila!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: You're So (Reverse Confetti)
Ink: Stazon Black
Other: You're So Confetti Cuts, Botanical Builders Framelits, Black Rhinestones, Warm Welcome Dies, Dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  I hope you'll head over to the Freshly Made Sketches blog and check out the amazing cards the design team has created for your inspiration!

Have a fabulous day!

  3. So beautiful and elegant! And -40 is not in my vocabulary, I'm very pleased to say! :)
