Take a Moment...

Hey there!  Boy it seems like ages since I last posted... just had a few things going on that were far more important than making and posting cards.   But now things have calmed down a bit (although I still have to decorate our tree and do a few other things) and so I found the time to make a card using this week's colors from ColourQ:  night of navy, marina mist, bashful blue, sahara sand and white. 



When I started thinking about what I wanted to do I knew for sure that I just wanted to do some simple stamping.  So I gathered up my inks and the stamp set I wanted to use (PTI's Harvest Berries) and did a couple of trial runs of my card to make sure that I got the right combination of colors.  I don't have sahara sand so I subbed in crumb cake.   The layout is one I probably use more often than most... image on one side in a light colour with the sentiment overstamped in a darker color.   Then the finishing touch of a bit of bling.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & SU! Night of Navy; Ink:  SU! Crumb Cake & Marina Mist; Memento Summer Sky; Bling:  Hero Arts; Stamps:  PTI Harvest Berries
