A Striking Combination

Hi again everyone!

As I mentioned earlier, I was so excited to play with a bunch of new stamp sets last night that my friend had brought over - I can barely wait to get my order on Tuesday and have even more new things to play with!

One of my favorite new sets is Bloom with Hope - it is truly a stunning and very versatile set so I was extremely excited to use it on this card.

I, ofcourse, got my inspiration from a couple of great challenges.

1. Colour Me...!

This week's colour combination was a "striking" one.  I, unfortunately, went by memory and instead of using Soft Sky, used Pool Party.  Oh well, close enough!

I loved this week's sketch and found it to be super versatile.

Here's my card:

Like I said, I really love this new stamp set and the sentiments that are in it are simply beautiful.
