Howdy all! It's a gorgeous day here with sunshine and a lovely breeze. My arms are rather pink after sitting on the patio for lunch and then taking the hounds for a swim! I spent some time in the Craft Cave as I wanted to get a card done for this week's ColourQ challenge. I love the bright colours and those super cute towels. I played around with a few ideas involving polka dots but was finally drawn to the hexagons from Paper Smooches' Vogue Abode set. Initially I was going to lay them out in a striped pattern but it wasn't quite working for me and I finally came up with these graphic looking flowers. Kind of fun huh? Young Crafters Unite is currently running a flower challenge so I'm going to enter this over there as well.
