Lighthearted & Lovely - FMS#207 CTD#363

There's a lot going on at the moment, but the best way to keep life on an even keel is to slip away for a few minutes to play with paper and ink. I'm looking forward to another weekend away with three of my grandchildren, and there will definitely be no 'time out' for Gran and Pop!!!

Freshly Made Sketches always has some inspiration over on their challenge blog, and by just rotating the sketch it has accomodated my design. This time I found my colour inspiration at Color Throwdown.

I began with flowers and fuss but quickly changed track to this very simple card, with a sentiment from Stampin' Up!® Boys Will Be Boys and a single leaf from Lighthearted Leaves. When making a card like this with pieces needing precise positioning its always a good idea to have  Tombow multipurpose glue handy because it allows you to slip the pieces around for a short while.
