Creating Pretty Cards # 38

I’m in a bit of shock with this card as I’ve created it for a challenge.  I know, it has been so long since I’ve actually done a card 038a-147x300for a challenge.  When I saw this sketch, I knew exactly what stamp set I was going to use & the colours, so it come together super easy!  Don’t you love it when that happens?  I think we tend to overthink things a lot of the time & create stress on ourselves.

For the challenge over at Craft Project Central, I’ve used “Kinda Eclectic” – love every stamp in this set – plus a couple of the new In ColoursLost Lagoon & Tangelo Twist.  I didn’t actually do the card size of the sketch, but a standard size card – hope that will be ok?
