Hope - Teal & Gold



Happy Friday Friends

I hope you all had a good week :) I made this card inspired by the colours of a new journal that I bought. I was out shopping for a birthday present for my husband and came across an array of colourful journals at TK Maxx. I did not need a new journal but I just loved the colours on this so I just had to have it.  I love the colour teal it is one of my favourite colours along with Turquoise. I always seem to grab those colours first when I am crafting.  I am not usually a fan of gold I am more of a silver girl but these two colours go really well together. I would never have put them together if I had not seen how good it looked on this journal. It is so amazing the things you find that inspire you to create! Here is a picture of my journal.


I love this Hope stamp from Unity you can find it here. I embossed it with gold embossing powder on to white card. Then layered it on to a teal chevron background then some gold tone card that was made using my Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine. The glitter card base was cut from card stock that I found at Tuesday Morning it was such a bargain 12 sheets for $2.99. if you live near a Tuesday Morning they have some great craft bargains. My local store has some great card and paper stacks amongst other things you should go and have a wee look around. I bought way too much stuff I just could not resist ;)

Anyway thanks so much for stopping by I hope you have a great weekend. I sure will we are leaving for vacation to Maine for a few days then hopefully on to Prince Edward Island. I am so excited!!
