Colour Q and Try Stampin' On a Tuesday

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I had a great day at work!  When I got home I was checking out some of my favourite challenges and I was inspired to create!!!

I love the new challenge I found called Try Stampin' On a Tuesday. The Design Team is great and the sketches are open-ended and clean and simple!  The blog creator is a Canadian, just like me!!!  So I had to play along with them!!!  You really need to go and check them out!!!  I am using their sketch for my card, and I also used the Colour Q Colours this week, which are Pink Pirouette, Certainly Celery, Kraft and Early Espresso.  Such a pretty and light combination of colours! I love it!!!

I have been thinking about inking up the "Charming" set, I have not used it in a while and I love it! Especially the pretty floral stamp that comes with it!  I inked it up with my SU! markers and used the Crumb Cake for the words behind the floral image.  Then using my crimper once again (yep, it is my favourite tool) I crimped the Pink Pirouette make it a little more "vintage" feeling. 

The sentiment is from "Because I Care" and I inked up the floral again and stamped it over top of the sentiment.  Thank you for stopping by!  If you have any questions, please email me...I would love to hear from you!!!
