Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #286

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great week!  We are having another wet week.  We have had a ton of rain in the last week or so and the forecast is for more rain!  At least the rivers and creeks will be full to start the summer season (if summer ever decides to arrive!).

We have a great new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches courtesy of our master flower maker and fussy cutter, Narelle Farrugia!  Narelle makes the most beautiful cards!  Please head over to her blog to check them out!

Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of my card during the day today...this will teach me to just take the picture the day I make the card and not wait!!!  I had these poppies sitting on my craft table already coloured!  I decided they needed to be used on this card.  I added some Wink of Stella (of course) and called it a day!  Okay, it didn't come together that easily.  I went through a ton of DSP changes and there is a whole other card that was created before this one!  Sometimes the creative juices just don't flow the way we want them to!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pink (I have no idea what colour pink it is!)
DSP: Pop of Pink
Stamps: Plane and Simple (My Creative Time), LJD Pretty Poppies
Ink: Versamark Black
Other: LJD Pretty Poppies Dies, Zig Clean Colour Real Brush Markers, Softly Falling Embossing Folder, Dimensionals, Basic Rhinestones

Thanks 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 you!  

Have a fabulous day!



  1. Oh so pretty in pink! Your flwoers are lovely! And I hear ya about things taking a turn in the wrong direction......not that it ever happens to me....ha!

  2. I love that you've used these poppies again - they are some of my favourite floral images. And they look gorgeous in pink. Wonderful card, Jen!

  3. Lots of rain here too. And the sun won't make an appearance for a long while, I'm afraid. I think we're in the same weather pattern! But who needs sun when you've got some beautiful flowers for us! Love how you've colored them up and put them on that black background. Stunning!

  4. Your photo is just fine Jen! Your card is just stunning - those flowers are just amazing set against the black circle. Love everything about it!

  5. Lovely Card! Love your classy pink and black color combo.

  6. Your coloring on these flowers is extraordinary!! Love, love, love this card!

  7. A very nice chic card with this black ! Good day
