Friday Evening Post

Hello, friends.. going to try to make a quick post here.  Have a card I made using sweet Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch and the colors from the current ColourQ challenge.  I just couldn't let the week end without making a card using Chupa's sketch.  I just LOVE her sketches!!  Anywhooo... on to the card.



When I saw the sketch I wasn't too sure what I was going to do, but then when I saw the ColourQ colors I knew I had to use my favorite HA set Bold Pop Designs.  I inked up the largest flower in the set using Hero Arts Hero Hues Punch ink and the smaller flower using SU!'s So Saffron.  Then both flowers were die cut using the matching dies.  I'm still in my white on white mode and so I embossed the background using my PTI Quatrefoil die, added the lace and the ribbon (SU!'s Pacific Point).  The circles were die cut using Spellbinders circle dies and then adhered to the card.  The bakers twine was added to the grey cord buttons, adhered to the flowers and then the flowers were added to the circle.  I die cut the fishtail flag using my MFT Fishtail Flag dies and then stamped the sentiment (also Hero Arts) using Pacific Point ink.

Thanks for stopping by and thank you those of you who took the time to comment about my shoulder.  It has been feeling better!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Grey; Stamps:  Hero Arts; Inks:  Hero Arts & Stampin Up!; Dies:  MFT, Spellbinders and Hero Arts; Twine:  Twinery; Ribbon & Buttons:  Stampin Up!

Hello Rosie
Your Quatrefoil die is amazing and makes for a beautiful background, and sets the scene for your centre piece of die-cut blooms, your colour palette is bright and breezy and relates a happy feel. I really like your White on White with the splashes of colour it is crisp and clean, and delightful to boot.
Smiles:)
