August CCC

The August CCC sign up has begun!  Once again we were provided with a choice of a colour palette, a sketch or a theme, or all three!  I went, as usual, with all three!  You have until the 17th of August to sign up, it's fun, give it a try!

Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; patterned paper (unknown)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; CTMH (Tulip dye ink)
Stamps: Stampin' Up (Elements of Style; Language of Friendship)
Other: Oval Nestabilitie; Pearl (stash); Dimensional squares

Sketches are really helpful!  And I liked this colour combination too.  I had a great time playing with my new Stampin' Up stamps.  I hope the recipient (who has not yet been revealed), likes this card.

Thanks for popping in!  Have a wonderful day.

Glad you are having fun with the new Stampin' Up stuff! Gorgeous hummingbird- love how he looks as if he's flying thru an open window to get to the flowers :)
