Hello! It’s a lovely sunny Spring day here and as I’m not working today and the kids are at school I’ve had a couple of hours to create – bliss :). I really liked this week’s Retro Sketches layout and thought I’d combine it with the Colour Q challenge.

These bright colours all together are a little out of my comfort zone, but on the white background I do like the combination. I had an old reel of Bravo Burgundy ribbon and added the little flower buttons from the SU Brights collection. The Pumpkin Pie circle needed something extra so I added the white dashed line with a white pen.

Thanks for looking and have a wonderful weekend!

colourQ challenge #214

This is my first time entering the colourQ challenge! I needed a card for my son’s friend who’s turning six and this palette seemed like a good option for his card, below.

The Bashful Blue panel is embossed with the SU Alphabet Press folder – my background in book publishing has given me a weakness for anything with typography on it. The main image is from the SU Ronald  McDonald set Tag It. To give the balloons a little more dimension I added crystal effects.
