Freshly Coloured Paper

 
Playing along with this week's Freshly Made Sketches and combining it with this weeks' Colour Q challenge. A bonus challenge was the Paper Player challenge so this card is a three for :)

With such wonderful colours reminding me of a blue sky and some leaf colours, I pulled out my beloved maple leaf die once again.  I also flipped the sketch in order to accommodate the maple leaves.  Like my blue tree bark LOL!  Needed the texture so I went for it!

I also had great fun using my new banner die from Verves's recent Anniversary release.  Love this die!!

Another fabulous day here on the West Coast.  Lots of sunshine and the kids are settling into school nicely.  The routine of early mornings and busy days has begun LOL!

Have a great day and thanks for popping by today!
