Summer Goodness...


This week's we've got a really versatile colour combination over at the ColourQ...

I wanted to play with a few of my pre-order goodies from the new catty (coming in just two weeks' time!) so I used Lost Lagoon (one of the new in colours) instead of Bordering Blue, along with a new sentiment set...

I used the lovely Summer Silhouette set, together with the new Something to Say sentiment set. I also snuck in an Old Olive blendability marker (for the shading on the leaves), some Lost Lagoon ribbon (which is LUSH!) and some new dsp.

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Something to Say
Ink: Lost Lagoon, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Paper: Moonlight dsp, Rich Razzleberry, Crumb Cake, Whisper White
Accessories: Crumb Cake button, Lost Lagoon stitched ribbon
Tools: 2 1/2" circle punch, banner framelit

I used the layout from Seize the Sketch for this one...

Make sure you check out all the wonderful inspiration from the rest of the design team this week!

Thanks for stopping by...
