Colour Challenge!

Yippee - it's the weekend! My Saturday's over and done with almost, and it was a great one. Lots of time with DH, lots of sunshine, and milkshakes sitting by the sea - ever noticed how everything tastes SO much better at the beach?

My Friday was altogether quieter. I got to sit and read a book cover to cover in one sitting. BLISS! The book was "Still Missing" by Chevy Stevens - highly recommended. I love to read....and so you'll see why the card I've made for this week's OCC challenge was oh-so perfect for this week!
When this stamp set dropped into my mailbox this week I knew it would look great in today's OCC challenge colours. They are Marina Mist, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede and Early Espresso. The image was coloured with SU! Markers and a waterbrush on watercolour paper. I used the fine tip to add dot and stripe details. The Marina Mist circle was embossed then brayered on the negative side with Early Espresso ink.

I've kept the inside pretty simple. I loveeee the sentiments with this set, so true!

Head on over to OCC and see the wonderful design team creations and we hope you'll play along!
