Just Sayin' challenge

Well it's been a lovely Friday afternoon - a gorgeous sunny day so managed to get a bit of gardening done before a good friend arrived to help and then we planned to make a card or two together. What more could you want?  :-)

I have been thinking about the great sketch at The Paper Players this week

 And today finally had some time to make the card - and I've teamed it with a Splitcoast Stampers Clean and Simple challenge too - to make a clean card that has a colour (not a neutral) for a base card..

The chevron above the above the Word Bubble is supposed to look a bit like a raised eyebrow..:-) It is first punched with the chevron punch and then each end was shortened.

For the base card I've used some Tangerine Tango - something nice and bright :-)  - and goes with the Retro DSP. I've also used some Retro Washi tape and some So Saffron card stock embossed with the pretty Decorative Dots EF that's still available for FREE as part of Saleabration. 

Card stock: Tangerine Tango, Baked Brown Sugar, So Saffron, Very Vanilla
Designer Series Paper: Retro Fresh
Inks: Coastal Cabana, Baked Brown Sugar
Stamps: Just Sayin', Hardwood
Accessories: Big Shot, Stripes EF, Decorative Dots EF, Word Bubblle Framelits, Circle Framelits, Brown button, Chevron punch, Linen thread (in button), Retro Fresh This &That Washi tape

Well, its time now to take Sally the Lab out for a walk to meet her pal Monty in the parkwhile the weather is still good. Such a great day for the last day of Summer!

Happy stamping until next time,
