The Colour Q has a pretty color combo this week! I do not have much Orchid Opulence left in my stash of scraps - I was, actually, surprised I had any! I'm glad I did, though, because other lavenders just didn't do the combo justice.

Stamp Set: A Word for You
Ink: Basic Gray, Pool Party
Paper: Pool Party, Summer Starfruit, Whisper White, Orchid Opulence
Tools: Big Shot, Finial Press EF, Adorning Accents Edgelit scallop, Decorative Label punch, sponge
Embellishments: Basic Gray stitched grosgrain ribbon

I have a made few cards here and there in the last 2 months, but it has been hard to find time for my hobby lately! I have a customer waiting for an order now, so I've had to make time. Not that I mind. :) The ones shown in this post I made today and found inspiration from challenge sites, as usual! My customer always likes a few cards that are completely blank.
First, a sketch and color challenge from two different sites. Colors from Color Throwdown. Sketch from The Paper Players.

Paper: Pool Party, Very Vanilla, Elegant Soiree DSP, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake
Tools: Big Shot, Elegant Lines EF, Apothecary Accents Framelit, Blossom punch, 1 3/4" and 7/8" Scallop Circle punches, 3/4" circle punch
Embellishments: Pool Party ribbon and button, Crumb Cake button

Second, this sketch comes from Freshly Made Sketches. 

Paper: Summer Starfruit, Baja Breeze, Comfort Cafe
Tools: Simply Scored Borders Plate
Embellishments: Soft Suede striped grosgrain, Baja Breeze seam binding, Cajun Craze button, crochet thread
