Happy Weekend!

From Adriel:

The weekend is here again! And my husband got the taxes done last night, which means he doesn't have to spend the weekend working on them, which means he gets to spend more time with me! =D <------- BIG smile It's definitely a HAPPY weekend! =)

I've got a card to share with you today that I made last week. I used a few challenges to help me get a head start on it... challenges can be helpful in that way.

For my thank you card I combined two challenges:

1. I used the Play Date Cafe Challenge #24, which was to use the beautiful color combo of Plum, Lavender, and Cream. I would love to play more with these colors... they're just so beautiful together! =)

2. I used the sketch from Just Add Ink #12. It was a simple layout and very easy to work with and be creative with. =)

Here's my card!

Some new Stampin' Up! goodies were recently delivered to us and one of them was this cute new set called "Sweet Scoops". It will be in the new Spring/Summer Occasions Mini catalog. It was perfect for the card theme I had in mind, which was "treat yourself" and included a gift card to Starbucks. ;-) This card was very easy to put together since the colors were already figured out for me and the layout... I wish it was that easy all the time! =)

Supplies: Pale Plum CS, Perfect Plum CS, Very Vanilla CS, Sweet Scoops stamp set, Sahara Sand classic ink, Pale Plum Stampin' Write marker, Perfect Plum Stampin' Write marker, Scallop edge punch, Large oval punch, Scallop oval punch, Sponge, Corner Rounder, Cream-colored satin ribbon.
