Hello Lili Rose - PSC75

Hello friends!  So happy to see Wednesday.  I've been a little under the weather since Saturday, but finally feeling about back to normal tonight.  It's been very busy at my house, a lot of different things going on; some good, some not so much but today, we concentrate on the good.  I'm doing a little remodeling outside - having a patio installed.  They came yesterday and installed the patio cover and we are scheduled to have the concrete slab poured next Friday (the 26th).  I'm so excited to have this done finally.  I'll post pictures after it's all completed.

So, let's get to the Perfect Sentiment challenge for this week.   The challenge is to create a card for the occasion of your choice using the color scheme shown in the photo.  Don't forget to include a sentiment on the front of your card.  These colors are Coral-Orange + Aqua Blue + Latte.

 Here is the card that I created.  I actually used a stamp this time instead of a digital.  I have to do this more often because I have a lot of stamps that haven't seen ink yet!  

Materials Used:
  • Image - Stampavie - Lili Rose
  • Sentiment - Stampin Up - Touch of Kindness
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Pool Party and Crumb Cake; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Stampin Up - Everyday Enchantment
  • Accessories - Die Cuts - My Favorite Things - Dainty Doily; SCACD - Custom Corners; Flowers - Prima (Blue) Petaloo (Orange and Leaf branches); 1 3/4" round punch; Dew Drops - Sunflower
  • Copic Markers - BG0000, BG02, BG10; E50, E51, E53; E00, E70, E71; G43; YR01, YR65, YR82 
I used the My Favorite Things layout MFTWSC90 for this card.
I did tweak it just a bit and put my dew drops at the bottom instead of at the top.

Now it's your turn.  The idea is for you to create a card and enter it in the weekly challenge.  You may be selected as the winner of our weekly prize which this week is 3 free Christmas Digis from the Perfect Sentiment Blog.  Check it out.  You could also be one of the Perfect 3.  So head on over to the Perfect Sentiment Blob and see what the rest of the Design Team has created for you and then get inky and join in the fun!

    1. Hi Tracey. Would love to have you come play with the Perfect Sentiment challenges. I've been on the DT for about 1 1/2 years now and love it.

      I've been a member of The Outlawz for a some time too but I don't always get a chance to play over there. It's hard with working full time to get time to play.

      Hope to see you more.
