Hello There Lemon Lime Twist for Global Design Project #GDP086

I sat at my desk last night planning to make a card for the Global Design Project sketch challenge.  Great plan!  I'm really pleased with myself because not only did I make a card for the challenge, but I carried on and made two more cards in the same vein!

This is the sketch given as a starting point and as inspiration this week, and there are lots of ideas on the Global Design Project site.  It has taken me a while to get going with my new products - part of me wanted to savour their newness and part of me didn't know what to do with them!  Now I have started to experiment I don't want put them down or stop creating.

The cards all have the same core ingredients - I have used two of the gorgeous new In Colors, Tranquil Tide and Lemon Lime Twist, and a fabulous new stamp set called Pieces & Patterns.  I must admit that initially I wasn't going to purchase this set straight away, not because I didn't like it, but because I thought I could wait, and buy it later.  Thankfully, my youngest daughter saw its potential immediately and persuaded me to buy it!  I am so pleased that she did.  Now I have started to use it, I love it.

I've also used some new Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon, Silver Glimmer paper, white Bakers Twine, washi tape from an incredible new card kit, called Soft Sayings, the brand new Pretty Label punch and there is also quite a liberal helping of sparkle and shine from my Wink of Stella Glitter Brush!
