I actually made another card for this challenge but the more and more I looked at it the more I didn't like it. I wanted to create something with softer colours and I was happy with my remake.


I used SSS Everything together Stamp set along with SSS Dye inks in - Pale Blush Pink, Lemon Zing, Lake Shores, Thistle & Dusty Sage to create the background. 


I played around with a few different color cardstocks and settled with SSS Smoke Grey and using my Xyron Creative Station I run 3 pieces of card through for the sentiment which is Birchpress Sugar Script Just Because

Quite a simple card but I am really happy with the soft tones and how it turned out. 


So now its YOUR turn.
