Staying at home has caused me to lose all sense of what day it is anymore. I definitely couldn’t tell you the date, and I probably would have a hard time determining what day of the week it currently is as well. But I do know it’s time for another new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. And this week our hostess, the very talented Jacquie Southas, has a fun one for us. Take a look:
I hadn’t used the Forever Blossoms stamp set yet, and I think it is so pretty. Now that Spring is officially here, I thought it was high time to break it out and get it inky.
I started by cutting out a Pool Party card base and adhering a piece of Parisian Blossoms dsp to it. I then cut out a piece of white card stock using one of the Stitched Nested Labels dies.
The flowers were stamped and colored with markers and then die-cut using the Cherry Blossoms dies. I love how these dies cut out the little bits for you.
I added some Flirty Flamingo splatters before adhering the blooms with dimensionals and a little white baker’s twine bow. The sentiment is from the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set.
This is a great time to be creative and make a pretty card! We hope you’ll use the sketch and create your own card and post it to the Freshly Made Sketches gallery. Meanwhile, be sure to stop by the Freshly Made Sketches site to see what the design team has created for your inspiration!
Enjoy your Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by!

This card is just gorgeous Amy! So perfect for Mother’s Day (which will be here before we know it!) Those blossoms are so pretty! I can’t wait for the blossoms to come out here.
Beautiful spray of flowers! And it is perfect with the background you used! Lovely card!
I love this! The soft Pool Party background is wonderful with the pop of the pink flowers. The shape is so eye-catching. It was wonderful chatting yesterday – such a wonderful break from sitting at home!
Wow, Amy! You created such a delightful and delicate card with that gorgeous cherry blossom and the very soft colors.
This is a stunner- one of my faves for the week! I love the color selection and your use of the sketch. The flowers to the left edge of your central shape is so classy. Gorgeous card, Amy!
