You're Sublime PCC#184

Happy Wednesday to you and welcome to another hot Autumn day in Melbourne!  At 35 degrees (Celsius) it was even 5 above the forecast temp for today and although the sun has long gone down it is still quite warm - good for the new veggies I recently planted in the garden but a bit hot for sleeping.

Today's card is for The Paper Craft Crew and sadly will be my last as part of the team of lovely ladies there. I am very grateful to Pam for giving me my first post on a Design Team and it has been a great time of growth - my cards have changed so much over the years. I hope to use the time to take a bit of a break and then to start entering the odd challenge again - something I haven't been able to do for a while and so I hope to still see you around :-)

Here is this week's sketch:

And here is my card:

This card is for a special young Teen who loves Purple - and what better colour to compliment purple than pink :-)
The purple caravan is coloured on Water colour paper using Zig markers and an Aqua painter. I find this helps me get a more vibrant image than using ink pads alone and is so much fun! The sentiment is white embossed and the stars and stripes and polka dot elements aim to keep it young and fresh. Did I succeed? 

Card stock: Melon Mambo, Whisper White, Lost Lagoon, Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer, Water Colour Paper
Designer Series Paper: Brights and Regals Stacks
Inks: Black Stazon, Versamark
Stamps: You're Sublime, Sky is the Limit
Accessories: Big Shot, Circle Framelits, Star Framelits, Large Polka Dots EF, Itty Bitty Punch Pack (Star), White EP, Brights Sequins Assortment,
Non SU : Zig Real Brush Markers

Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to The Paper Craft Crew and see all the lovely cards the rest of the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will make with this fun sketch too!

Happy stamping until next time,
