Keeping it Simple - Colour Q #225

Hello fellow bloggers!

Only a week to go until school begins. Am I a bad mother for saying I'll be ready?! Over 6 weeks is a long time to keep 2 little boys entertained and, dare I say it, I am looking forward to a little bit of  'me' time.  The mojo seems to disappear a little in the holidays, especially since we've been away from home on a few occasions. So, for this week's Colour Q challenge I kept it very simple and used this fabulous sketch from Case This Sketch for some inspiration:

I used a gorgeous embossing strip from Anna Griffin - I love how it's produced such a defined pattern on the cardstock. I added a couple of Funky Flowers from Waltzingmouse and a sentiment and that was it. Told you it was simple but I can do without complicated at the moment...too busy trying to think of ways to entertain the little troops without breaking the bank account!

Hope you get the chance to play along this week - take a peek at the rest of the team's beautiful creations to whet your crafty appetite!

Thanks for stopping,
