Cure for the Monday Blues #22



I'm super excited to be guest designing for The Cure for the Monday Blues!
I have enjoyed playing along with Taheerah's fabulous inspirational challenge (click!), 
and was so thrilled when she asked me to guest design for her this week!


I was inspired by the colours, the diagonal stripes on the table legs, the shapes on 
 those drawers and that super sweet photo with the sun on it.

Here's my card:


I used the backs of various circle stamps in my collection to stamp my background
in aqua mist, harvest gold, sweet blush & berry sorbet.
I die cut my diagonal patterned paper using the top part of the tag from the 


I stamped the sentiment using Papertrey Ink's Wet Paint stamp set.
I stamped the sun (from Papertrey Ink's City Scene) onto sweet blush card stock and cut out by hand.
A few Pretty Pink Posh sequins (6mm Pink Blush4mm Lemon Meringue) finish it off.

For my card, I also used Poppy Sketch #7,
which Pretty Pink Posh is sponsoring:


I'm linking this up to this week's 
Thanks for looking!
