Another Colour Challenge

So today we had yet another thunder storm. The thunder and lightning has been crazy the last 3 days. The amount of rain that has been pelting down is just drenching. It's been really hard to get errands done, and tomorrow we are suppose to be having a BBQ with family that has driven from out of town. It seems as if we have only seen the sun for about 4 days the last two months. It's been so dark and dismal these last few months that I decided to add some cheer to the day by completing another My Time to Colour Challenge from Lauren Meader. This week I used the colours Lemon Tart, Ocean Tides, Plum Pudding and Berry Sorbet from Papertrey Ink, along with Whisper White from SU to match the inspiration below. (A reminder of summer....something I haven't seen in over a year) Nice bright colours.

I apologize for the dark photo. With the crappy weather we have been having there isn't any natural light to help with the photo.
It is hard to see but the Plum Pudding layer has been embossed using the damask template. The scalloped oval is a Big Shot die from SU that I used on my cuttlebug. I decided to punch some holes in the scallops for some added decoration. The stamps are from Botanical Blooms and the sentiment is from Nature Silhouettes, both SU.

  1. Beautiful card - great job with the colors. I like the holes in the scallops - nice accent. Thanks for playing - hope you'll come back again. :-)
