Colour Q and Freshly Made Sketches

Hello - there.

Last post tonight - I promise! A Mary Higgins Clark book and the cushy comfort of my favorite bed is calling my name. I fear I have been away from both for far too long. I can't let them feel neglected.

This afternoon, I tackled the Colour Q #148 challenge. I love how happy the colors look. You have to smile when you see them grouped together. I also used the Freshly Made Sketches layout to piece my card together. I almost always seem to need a boost when it comes to the layout part. That aspect of my Mojo runs the slowest.

These colors match perfectly with my "Olivia" paper kit leftover pieces - another favorite from my infamous CTMH Archives. I used the "Trellis" stamp set to stamp the rose and leaves in Cotton Candy pink, Blush pink, and 2nd generation Pear ink.

I love how this one turned out.

The sentiment is stamped in Sunset colored-ink using the PaperTrey Ink Botanical Silhouette set. The Bakers Twine and adhesive gems are CTMH.

Thanks for looking and have a happy rest of the week. Pin It
