This is my second post for today! Scroll down to see the layout I posted this morning ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s been several weeks since I’ve had time to play along with some card challenges. Tonight I made some time to play along with The Dynamic Duos color challenge which ends tomorrow and the new Freshly Made Sketch that was posted today.


Here is my take on both challenges~


quint-essential flower 1


I used the Quint-Essential Flower that I got free during Sale-a-Bration…poor stamp has only seen ink a few times tonight and it’s retiring at the end of the month. I was inspired by a few of the samples I saw on the FMS blog to use this stamp and flip the sketch on its side. The only thing I wish I did was ink the celebrate flag to make it stand out a bit more or used Very Vanilla cardstock instead…didn’t realize it blended in so much until I was editing this photo. ย Otherwise I’m pretty happy with how the card came out ๐Ÿ™‚
