A Cure For The Monday Blues


If you missed my first post HERE today, check it out as I announced the WINNER of the entire June Release. I said I would be back and here I am! I've been MIA for a few days due to being knocked down by a horrible cold going round. Doesn't sound much but colds seem to hit you hard when you're pregnant - or they have me! 

Anyway, this morning I've been catching up on some dreaded office work - accounts! I always seem to put it off, but it's a job I have scheduled in once a month now and I am happy that I am all up to date - YAY! 

So to cure my Monday Blues I decided to have a little inky session and play along with a couple of challenges :) First up is Taheerah's A Cure For the Monday Blues challenge HERE and seen below. 

And this is what I came up with...

I also decided to use the current CAS(E) this Sketch! layout seen HERE and below. From the inspiration photo I was mainly inspired by the polka dots on the napkin and the 3 coloured flowers. Not a colour combination I would normally put together, but I'm fairly pleased with how it's turned out.

I broke out the Hero Arts prism glitter this afternoon as it's been a while since it saw daylight! I added some to the centre of the flowers...

That's all I have for today, but I will be back tomorrow with more to share. Until then, thank you for stopping by today :)

Card Stock: White from stash, SU! Soft Sky
