Playful Colour Q...


Two posts in one day - my word! The wonders of having a day off completely free from other demands - have made four cards today and had a marvelous time! I've been using more of the retiring goodies from the catalogue and combined this week's Colour Q challenge with Jen's Sketch for You to Try for this card:

There were a lot of colours to use in this challenge! Some new ones (Cherry Cobler, Daffodil Delight and Tangerine Tango) as well as Bermuda Bay (I substituted some DSP from the Kaleidascope pack) with Kraft and Very Vanilla. I tried a bit of ruffled ribbon using the widest twill tape (retiring from the catty boo hoo!) and some sticky strip. The flower was created with Playful Petals (retiring...) by stamping the flowers on different colours of card then cutting out smaller layers and building it all up - lots of fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oooh, lovely flower, Amy!! Love your colour combo and way to go with the wide ruffled ribbon. You done great :) Glad you got to enjoy a day of stamping. Six more sleeps before I get my first day with the kids at school and I can't wait to stamp away!!
