Global Design Project #GOP050

This sketch was appealing in its simplicity, and made me think hard about how to use the block of colour in the middle in a way that wasn't too plain, but didn't overwhelm the sentiment. I took the opportunity to use one of my new favourite suites: Stampin' Up's 'Affectionately Yours'.

Made using Stampin' Up products:
Card: Crumb Cake, Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, Mint Macaron
Ink: Night of Navy, Watermelon Wonder, Cucumber Crush
Stamps: Love and Affection, Banners for You, Falling Flowers
Punches: Banners, Pansy
Other: DSP from Affectionately Yours pack, Mayflowers framelits

CAS Colours and Sketches, Just Add Ink Sketch

My good friend Jan Clothier (Scrapbooking Stuff) has been encouraging me to give blogging another go, and a card making session at her house taught me to look for challenges to combine.
The colour combination at CAS Colours and Sketches for Colour Challenge #187 intrigued me: I absolutely love Sweet Sugarplum but am not quite so fussed about Flirty Flamingo, so thought it was a good chance to try it out. I was also attracted to the Just Add Ink Sketch Challenge #325, so this card is the result.

Made using:
Card: Very Vanilla, Sweet Sugarplum, Flirty Flamingo, Chocolate Chip
Ink: (as above)
Stamps: Grateful Bunch (the lace), Postage Collection - a retired set (the sentiment)
Other: Pansy Punch, Circles Collection Framelits
