Paper Players 424 and TGIF194

This week at The Paper Players, Anne Marie has a pretty colour challenge. Grapefruit Grove is a colour I haven't warmed to but as I used it in this card I thought how pretty it looked with Pool Party.

For further inspiration, I used the sketch at TGIF.

I wanted to use Incredible Like You, one of the stamp sets we were given at On Stage in November, so the extra colour I added in was Old Olive.

The sentiment came from the fabulous Well Said bundle, which has greeting for absolutely every occasion. The stamps and the die cut words give you endless combinations of greetings. The little die cut foliage stems come from the Butterfly Beauty thinlits, which coordinate with the Beauty Abounds set.

Update: Delighted to be a winner at TGIF this week!
