Saturated!

Hi Peeps - Happy Friday :0)! I popped into The Play Date Cafe yesterday to see what new challenge they had - and this beauty was up!


I LOVE the saturated colour scheme of this - and the graphic clean feel ... so that is where the inspiration took me :


I stamped the leaves onto Enchanted Evening cardstock and then cut them out - layering the blue onto some Simply Chartreuse ...



The base cardstock is Soft Stone and the sentiment is heat embossed with silver!

I really enjoyed making this one and will be popping it in at Caardvarks also - they really *do* have me thinking about simple card design at the moment!

Thanks for stopping in - best wishes for a totally awesome weekend!

:0)!

Materials - All Papertrey Ink except; Sentiment - Hero Arts; Border Punch - Fiskars; Rhinestones - Kaiser
