I Had Time to Create Today (sigh of relief)

I have not had the opportunity to be very creative over the last week.  In fact, it's been 11 days since my last post (oh, that's sounding like a confession). I was happy to get back to it today, and I created a little card using the color scheme from Color Throwdown with the sketch from Just Add Ink (sketch and colors shown with my supply list below).

For supplies, I dipped into my November Simon Says Stamp Card Kit which had the perfect colors of paper.  I just had to add some ink and embossing powder.

I used four different pattern papers for this card.  The blue, snowy looking background, which I embossed with what looks like some windy stars.  The other three are in the banners.  I chose to emboss my sentiment on one of those pattern papers. 

I'm hoping to find more time to create this week.  It's good for the soul!
