Freshly Made Sketches 200th Celebration!

Hello stamping friends! Today marks an amazing milestone! Way back (Sept. 7, 2011) I decided to start my 2nd challenge blog and I called it "Freshly Made Sketches". 

Never did I imagine that it would last for as long as it has and I never thought it would become so popular. The design team then, now and in between have been all so talented and wonderful! A couple of years ago I stepped down from "running" the challenge and the multi-talented Jennifer Mitchell and Jennifer Timko took over! They have done a fabulous job of building the challenge and making it into one of my favourite challenge blogs out there! Thank you ladies!!

Jennifer Timko managed to organize all these sponsors! Even Stampin' Up has jumped in!! Thank you so much, Jennifer for all of your hard work with organizing this amazing day!!!

The 200th Sketch is a cool one! SO many possibilities and so much potential! I decided to ink up an Altenew Stamp set that I love called Vintage Roses. My flowers are stamped in Stampin' Up ink using Crisp Cantaloupe, Cajun Craze, Tangerine Tango and Peach Parfait! The leaves are Pear Pizzazz and Gumball Green. I stamped the flower images first and then using the sentiment that came with the set, stamped the bottom half of my card. Then I used some gold dot washi and twine to accent the divide. The butterfly was punched out of vellum and I added some pearls.

I hope you will join in at Freshly Made Sketches and support the team with their wonderful work! There are so many prizes to be won!
