Inspired by Bedding...

Today's Inspiration Challenge is taken from Boodalee Bedding.
I chose the "Teal World" that's shown on the left, and came up with this card....it was totally fun and I love these colours together.
I've actually managed to do three challenges here....I've used some of the rub-ons again, the colours for the inspiration, and then the layout it Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #42
which is also shown below.
The colours for the card are: Taken with Teal, Tempting Turquoise, and Gable Green, plus Black. I used the "Pick a Petal" and "Sweet Shapes" stamp sets. I also used the Colour Spritzer Tool for the background.

It's snowing here in Edmonton, or Fort Saskatchewan...who knows...it may not actually be snowing 30km away from us in the city. Amy comes back from Las Vegas this afternoon.....I am pretty sure she will not be happy about the snow after leaving the warm temperatures of the States! Who would be!!???
My daughter says the snow is her fault because she broke out the flip-flops already....oh and she's taking driver training so the Powers that Be are being kind enough to give her snow to practice in.
I think I've heard that the only month it has not snowed in the Edmonton area is July....and even then I wouldn't be surprised!!! The good thing is...it won't last!!!! Especially when we're all out there making cards and projects with spring-time colours.!!!

I'm just rambling now...so I'll quit.. Have a great day no matter where you are.
