I might be back.....

Hi again, I know, I know, it has been a long time. I have been spending as much time as I can at our trailer enjoying our summer time and weather. Sadly I do not have too much internet available while I am at the trailer as well as not too many craft supplies. I have been creating but mainly with yarn and sticks (my grandsons name for them) and of course reading.
I do check out the challenges each week in the hopes I may find a few minutes to create something. Today I had to create a card for a bridal shower that we hosted in our back gardens. I had been pondering the sketch challenge for a bit then saw the new colour challenge and thought why not. Sometimes the quickest way to make a card is to use challenges for the layout and colours it shortens the creative time as those decisions have already been made for you. So without further ado.... The atlantic hearts challenge is to use this sketch:  Then  over on color my heart color dare we are challenged to use only the colours listed and this week those colours are Saffron, Canary, White Daisy and gold.
 And this is the card I created for our Bride to be:)


I used the colours needed and used second generation stamping to stamp the backgrounds with the new background stamps from our new Cricut cartridg e "Flower Market". I also embossed the banners with two of our embossing folder, the dots were made with our gold metalic pen. All of the items I used are available on my shopping web site for Close to my Heart if you are interested in purchasing some of them. You can also always ask me for any questions or assistance.
