Two for One


Today I am playing along with Cure for the Monday Blues #22 and Retrosketches #120.

Here is my card:

I was visiting Leigh Penner's blog earlier this week and saw she was a guest designer for a challenge called Cure for the Monday Blues. I decided to join in this challenge for this first time!

The challenge was to use this this photo as inspiration:

I also decided to layout my card to play along with this week's retrosketch:


I was inspired by the light colors in the photo and combined PTI's Aqua Mist, Limeade Ice and SU's Crisp Cantaloupe on a PTI Soft Stone card base. I also used a piece of diagonal striped patterned paper (Fancy Pants I think....) just like the diagonal stripes in the photo. I embossed the sentiment (from PTI's Stylish Sentiments Birthday) in black as there are several dark accents in this picture. Lastly, I added some Glossy Accents, an SU button and some twine to a PTI Clip Tips die.

Thanks for visiting!
