Enjoy Your Day with French Foliage

I'm typing this post with crossed fingers, hoping that the Gremlins will allow my card to be displayed.

I have missed several challenges lately, what with a busy schedule and the gremlins in my blog, so I was glad to be able to sit still this afternoon and create.I saw that this week Clean and Simple and Cas-ual Fridays are teaming up together with a sketch, so decided to have a go at it.

I started my entry with a 5" square cream card from my stash and masked a 5 1/2cm panel on the left hand side. I sponged this with SU So Saffron, and stamped the text from French Foliage in Apricot Appeal. The leaves from the same set were then randomly stamped in Certainly Celery, Always Artichoke, and Soft Suede after stamping twice on a scrap piece of paper first to keep the images faded. A band of Adirondack Butterscotch was sponged across the panel just below half way up the masked area to lift the colours. I then stamped the dried grass from the Garden Silhouettes set in Adirondack Rust, and double stamped it again for a faded sprig.

 This was all finished off with a Verve sentiment which was the Blog Candy I was lucky enough to win with Mojo Monday in July.

Lately, I have tried so hard to keep away from bright in your face colours,and I've found that I quite like the softer colour pallets, and I was very happy with the result of this card and I hope you like it too.

With any luck I can do some more challenges and get them posted during the rest of the week ( if all goes according to plan!!)

Thanks for stopping by, and hope to see you again soon.
