Friday Focus

After the excitement of yesterday I've now got my feet back down on the ground and am ready to try to make it all happen another time.

Today it's a card for Freshly Made Sketches.  The sketch looked so like a scrapbook page I almost forgot it had to be used for a card, but sense prevailed in the end.  I really like using banners or flags and immediately reached for my Uniko Studio Background Builders stamp sets.  Also just had to crack open my new sentiment set and use the absolutely awesome AWESOME! I can see this appearing on my scrapbook pages soon.

The colour inspiration was so pretty from Colour Q and had me searching through my inks to find the best match. Such an unusual and different colour mix which I would never have thought of by myself, but I think it works really well. Just shows you need to break out from old habits every now and then.

Stamps: Uniko Studio, Background Builders - Round in Circles & Chevrons, All Occasion Sentiments #2 
Inks: Adirondack, watermelon; Memento, teal zeal & bamboo leaves; Tim Holtz distress ink, dusty concord
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Follow your Heart
Embossing: Cuttlebug folder  

Thanks for looking.
