Another week, another amazing sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. This time it is the lovely Jen Brum as our sketch hostess and she has created one that will ensure a varied and interesting gallery. I have been in a bit of a stamping slump (mostly due to lack of time) and so when I sat down to finally stamp yesterday, I was a bit overwhelmed with too many ideas and found myself stuck doing nothing instead. Ever have that happen??!! I did what any good stamper does and fessed up to the team, lol! And the wonderful Linda Callahan broke the code for me with three little letters. D.S.P. Yep, I needed a directional push and that was the right one. Yay for stamping friends!
I went over to my stash of papers and found this pretty spring set from last year called Painted Blooms. Once I chose the Wild Wasabi stripes and the Daffodil watercolor solid, I was back on track. I kept rummaging through some unused things and found these leftover flowers from my Watercolor Wishes kit. The sentiment from Watercolor Wishes was just the right size and I added sequins from the kit too. All of the rectangles are cut using Stitched Rectangles dies from Simon Says Stamp.
I’m sure you will have lots of ideas the minute you see this sketch but if in doubt, listen to Linda. This is a great sketch for using some of your pretty DSPs. Hope you have fun and I’ll see you in the gallery.

So very pretty!
This is gorgeous Jen! I love how you’ve used the DSP! I’m so thankful for Linda!!! The sentiment works perfectly with those flowers! Love the sequins too! Very pretty!
So soft and lovely! Love your stripes and “just a note”.
There is something very soothing to me about this card. It’s got a nice weather-worn, vintage look to it that makes me smile! The flowers are perfect in their simplicity and I love the sentiment.
LOVE your card!!!
This is beautiful! The striped paper really adds to the overall look of country elegance and I love those flowers.
Well these elements came together perfectly! Very pretty card……now if I could just follow my own advice as well!
Oh I love this! It has such a modern feel with that fab background and fresh colours!
