Freshly Made Sketches + ColorQ

Long time no blog! Sorry about that! I was out of town visiting family and it has taken me some time to get back in the swing of things and adapt to our summer schedule. I am not yet finding our summer days to be relaxed and carefree. We seem to be doing a lot of running around and are away from the house quite a bit. It makes it difficult to fit in stamping time.

I'm trying to get back to regularly participating in challenges. I had so much fun doing them a couple of weeks ago, and to my great surprise, three out of the four cards I made received at least an honorable mention on the challenge blogs. That was a great feeling! As someone who has CASEd many projects over the years, it is good to know that I am able to come up with decent designs on my own.

Here is today's card combining the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches with the color combination at ColorQ.

Stampin' Up Supplies Used:
Stamps: Perfectly Penned
Paper: Midnight Muse, Marina Mist, Bashful Blue, Lucky Limeade, Whisper White
Ink: Midnight Muse
Accessories: Big Shot, Fun Flowers die, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Boho Blossoms punch, Blossom Petals Builder punch, In Color brad, Mat pack, paper piercer

I just love this die! It is my go to die when I am struggling to come up with an idea. I don't think you can make an ugly card with it! This card is fairly simple, but it would be an excellent card to make if you needed to make several and it could be any type of card just by changing the sentiment! Love that! Anyway, hope you liked my card. Check out the two challenges and play along!

Thanks for stopping by!
