Simplicity for Sketchbook Saturday and Fusion Challenges

Sunday, June 8, 2014

After struggling with making a card the other day I was anxious to return to my stamp room and make sure that I still knew what I was doing in there.  I had a slow start but I'm pretty happy with my card.  Yay me (!).



The sketch from Sketchbook Saturday gave me my layout and the Fusion inspiration photo gave me the colors for my card.  I struggled a bit finding just the right shades of orange but I made do with what I had.  Maybe I need to go ink shopping!

Finally after weeks of waiting, summer-like weather has found me!  Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and after running some errands I parked myself on the patio with a book and relaxed for a couple of hours.  Today is going to be just as wonderful so I'll finish planting flowers and then I'll be getting down and dirty with some weeds!

Thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps:  Distressed Background Blocks, Jumbo Abstract Art (My Favorite Things); Esther's Garden (Art Gone Wild); New Day (Precious Remembrance)
Paper:  Classic White (Flourishes); Solar White (Neenah); Tangerine Tango (SU)
Accessories:  Lemon Drop Sprinklers (October Afternoon); Notable Cute Enamel Dots (My Mind's Eye)
