Catalog Inspired

 I had a nice quiet afternoon while the boys were out fishing. It was lovely to dive into some new goodies from the Stampin' Up! catalog, using the Artistically Inked and Pansy suite collections. I basically just cased and amended some of the samples in the catalog since I just wanted to stamp and not try to re-invent the wheel with new ideas. Lovely to just assemble some cards and listen to some John Prine. Life is good.

I am starting to get back into challenges on a daily basis, it really helps me to focus which has been a bit difficult this past year. 
This prompt was from the Global Design Project, case the designer Susan Wong. I went with a monochromatic theme like her pretty hydrangea card that was all in blues.
Loving the Pansy collection from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. I used some retired Petal Pink/Whisper White ribbon that seemed to go with it nicely.
