Get Well Soon

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog.  We had a great weekend here in Pittsburgh. Nothing special just one of those laid back summer days that you do something and then nothing (lol)!!

I did some cooking and crafting - two of my favorite past times. Looking forward to this week's farmers market to see what else may spark my interest for a satisfying meal. Love the summer bounty and being able to purchase local grown items.

Now onto my card for today. I am the hostess for this weeks color challenge #440 on Splitcoaststampers. I chose 5 colors this week. I gave the option of working with just 3 of the colors or going for all 5.

This week I selected my card colors and my papers and then went after a layout. I used the MojoMonday #307 sketch

I used the Stampin-Up “quatrefancy specialty” designer series paper for my background layer. So I was able to work in all 5 of the colors that I selected this week. Love this bright and bold paper.

My triangle panels are cut in strawberry slush and cover my dessert option. The flag pennants are cut in island indigo from a Spellbinders die. My doily is from a Cheery Lynn Designs die and cut in island indigo. The center is cut from the Stampin-Up “Venetian Romance” collection.

I punched a circle and used the Stampin-Up square lattice embossing folder. I stamped an image from the mosaic madness set in strawberry slush and punched out with the matching punch.

My get-well sentiment is from Verve. I received it in a recent order as a thank you. Added a few pearls to complete my card.

I am also entering this card in the Moxie Fab World "trendy triangles" challenge. I just saw the challenge last night and didn't think I could get a card made. How perfect that my layout is using triangles. So this worked for 3 challenges. Love that!!

Well that's it for me for today. So until next time.......God Bless.

I am also entering:
1.  Cheery Lynn Designs has a doily challenge. I used the doily from the Polynesian Sails die.
