Seize the Moment...


Oh my! What a busy couple of days I've had :) what with a FABulous release day & then wedding preparations such as picking up tickets, choosing a box to pack & carry my dress in, meeting up with friends who want to wish me luck :) I could go on but I'd bore you - Ha! So, I've had  to seize the moments in between all this to make today's card...

With not creating for a day or so I needed a little mojo boost, so I decided to use a NEW sketch challenge called Seize the Sketch seen HERE and below for the layout of my card.

I also decided to take the thinking out of deciding on what colours to use by using the current ColourQ challenge colours seen HERE and below.

No my usual go to colour scheme, but it works well for a floral card. My SU! Basic Grey ink pad was playing up so I used PTI Smokey Shadow which is a little darker than the Basic Grey but still fits in with the colour scheme. 

I decided to pair Beautiful Blooms 1 with the newly released Background Builders: Flower Power and I think the combo works well together. I'm looking forward to a little more inky time tomorrow whilst I wait in for a parcel! 

I'll will be back tomorrow however with a card or two to share & also the winner of the August Release Blog Hop. You've got a few more hours to hop along HERE & comment to be in the chance of winning the ENTIRE release plus the Time clear stamp set!

Thanks for stopping by today & for everyone who has ordered over the past few days, it makes me VERY happy to know that you love the stamps and dies I design as much as I do! :)

Card Stock: White from stash, SU! Basic Grey
