Freshly Made Sketches #197

My trip to DC was so awesome last week.  The Nats game was fantastic and they pulled out a great win.  We wandered around over the two days and went to the Arboretum, the Natural History Museum, saw the memorials and generally had a great time (and a lot of walking!).  Just what the family needed!  I have a picture at the bottom of the post of the boys before the Nats game.  The happy faces say it all!

Today over at Freshly Made Sketches we have this sketch that will become an instant classic.  My friend Jen Brum designed it and it rocks!

I started with the butterfly from the Bold Butterfly Framelits.  Conveniently, Just Add Ink has a butterfly challenge this week so I am playing along with that!  I had the piece of watercolored paper from last week’s card sitting around still and I cut it out with the butterfly.  Part of it was still uncolored so I splashed on a little Daffodil Delight ink with my Aquapainter.  Remember when I told you last week about winning that flower die?  Well, I also won this Basic Grey DSP and it works perfectly here!  I added a square of Thick Whisper White with the sentiment from Garden in Bloom stamped in Rose Red.  I added on some Basic Rhinestones for a little extra sparkle.


Now just look at those faces?  Aren’t they cute?!  They might be part of the reason that I’m not stamping as much right now but, let’s face it, they are totally worth it!!

Now, off to see what the rest of the DT created!  You will love the projects!  I’ll be back on Friday for this month’s Fancy Friday hop.  Until then, have a great week!

Love the soft colours of this card Jennifer! Great design and your kids look adorable! I really must try and get over this week . . . I have been so busy since coming home that I have neglected one of my most favourite and regular challenges! Thanks for the inspiration! Hazel xx
