Colour Q #190 {Happy Father's Day}

Saturday's are probably one of my favourite days of the week. It's the day I get to sleep in, craft, clean & organize, catch up with family... This morning I got to have a skype call with my parents who are in Holland visiting family. I wish I was there with them! Sounds like they are having a great time.
I'm hoping I will have a productive day today! I have had a lack of motivation lately. In any case, I plan to clean our apartment, bake zucchini muffins, organize my craft space and enjoy the beautiful weather we are supposed to have!

I wanted to play along with the colour challenge from Colour Q this week. I love these colours together! 

I thought these colours would work well for a Father's Day card. I picked an older sketch from Deconstructed Sketch to use as a guide.

The layers in this card give opportunity to use different coloured designer paper. I used Midnight Muse as the colour for the card base. Baja Breeze covers the card front. It is embossed with the argyle embossing folder (my first time using it and I absolutely love it!). The sentiment becomes the central image in this card. I love how it stands out against the More Mustard and Cajun Craze.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be taking the next couple days off from blogging. Stay tuned on Tuesday for a new post! Enjoy your weekend!
