Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #291

Happy Wednesday!  I hope you're having a great start to your week.  We have had a few days of chillier temperatures and rain.  Not exactly summer around here these days but it looks like things will be taking a turn for the better starting tomorrow!

We have a new sketch this week at Freshly Made Sketches!  I happen to be this week's hostess!  It can be a little nerve wracking to come up with a sketch.  You just never know if the sketch will be well received or if people will think you're nuts!!!

I still had some of the Carried DSP sitting on my desk.  I just love it and I can't help using it over and over again!!!  I'm not that great at mixing different patterns and colours so I wasn't sure if this was going to work.  I needed to add a flower to my cup because it was a bit boring!  Of course the flower is covered in Wink of Stella.  As if there was any doubt.  I embossed the background of the card just to give it a bit of dimension.

Cardstock: Whisper White, Night of Navy, Peekaboo Peach
DSP: Carried Away
Stamps: Coffee Talk (Lil Inkers)
Ink: Night of Navy
Other: Botanical Builders Dies, Coffee Talk dies (Lil Inkers), Sequins, Wink of Stella, Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Dimensionals

Thanks for stopping by!  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!  I can't wait to see what you come up with this week!

Have a fabulous day!
