Welcome to my Blog, you came to me via Gez, we have 16 people taking part in this months Hop so please get comfortable and enjoy the journey. 

I was a bit underwhelmed when I saw the colours for this month, they certainly set a challenge, Pool Party, Merry Merlot and Pineapple Punch.

I've kept it simple, I haven't added a sentiment as yet, I will do that before I actually use the card.

I used the Pineapple Punch for the card base, I attached a strip of Merry Merlot to a strip of Whisper White then ran them through with the Basketweave Embossing Folder.

Using a die from the Painted Labels Die I cut the circle from Pool Party cardstock. 

Just to add a little more Merry Merlot I stamped some vellum with the small Daisy Lane stamp and pinched it out.

Details of products used are below, thank you so much for stopping by, grab a coffee and please continue through the Blog Hop and see how everyone has dealt with this challenge.

  1. I had trouble with this combo too Sue. But we both pulled a Rabbit out of our hats and got it done.
    Love that you left a sentiment off it for now. The right sentiment will come at the right time. Xo

  4. Lovely card Sue, I struggled with Pineapple punch as I find it too bright. Great card, I often leave the sentiment off until I am sending so it can be for any occasion required :-)

  5. Beautiful card design. I love the textured background.

  6. Fantastic combination and balance with this colour combination Sue Cheers Shaz
