Enjoy

RetroSketch



Playing along with this month's CARDS Blog Challenge.  Thankfully I had some MME paper that gave me the aqua colour I needed but had to sub in certainly celery for the chartreuse.  Must say I really do enjoy the colour combo.     

I paired the colours with this week's Retro Sketch and kept things on the CAS side.  The embossing folders provided the texture and I pulled out my favorite PTI flower die as my focal embellishment - happy sigh :)  Just wish I had the linen embossing plate to give that white panel a little something, but alas, it is still on my wish list.  Maybe it will crossed off on  my birthday. 

Short and sweet today as lots to get done. On a cleaning and purging binge and have to strike while the iron is hot!

Half way through the week and I think my body is now speaking to me again after making it wake up so early again.  Oh to be a morning person LOL!  

Have a fabulous day and thanks so much for sharing a bit of yours with me.

I love those colors, Marisa. Your card is so pretty, clean, and crisp.
I've been awake since 3:00 a.m. My eyes pop open about that time every morning, lately. Gee Whiz..that's getting old.

Love the colors on this card. So peaceful and calming even with the bright green. I am a morning person, but I envy the people who are not sometimes as I start totally dragging at 8:30 PM! Hard to go anywhere at night but I am great company at breakfast - LOL!
