Guidelines!

Well finally I got around to taking some pictures!  I have been really busy with school and with my kids but I have been crafting. Unfortunately I hadn't taken a picture of a darn thing lately!  I have enough pics taken now to get the blog moving for at least this week and part of next week.  I even found a notebook I had made for Dawn's color challenge, which is now long over!  Oh well!  For this card I pulled out a couple of PTI's sets:  Giga guidelines, Guidelines 1, and Guidelines 2.  These are some of my most favorite sets.  Sometimes I just like to sit and build backgrounds on a blank piece of paper.  For this background I used the gridlines cardstock from PTI.  It makes building the background even easier.  Everything is easier to line up.  If you use a gridlined block its even better!  I started with big Giga stamp in Spring Moss (original formula).  Next I added in a tile from guidelines 2 in aqua mist (new formula).  Finally I went back with a stamp from guidelines 1 in plum pudding.  Next I stamped the sentiment from Giga Guidelines on some plum pudding cardstock that I had scalloped with my corner rounder.  I added a layer of aqua mist bitty dots and some satin aqua mist ribbon.  I added to that a plum pudding button tied on with cream twine.  Everything is mounted to a Ripe Avocado base.  It is so pretty IRL.  I think it might be one of the ones I hoard!  LOL!  
I hope you all had a good Monday.  I spent the day with my kiddies (they go to year round school and are off track right now) at the zoo.  We looked at animals and played at the park.  It was a really nice morning.  Tomorrow we are back to the work grind!  Thanks for coming by!

What a GORGEOUS colour combo! I was a huge fan of your Dark Choc and Aqua Mist combo but this is soooo pretty! I love the background you've created too - fab idea to combine guidelines with giga guidelines!
