Color Stories Inspiration #128

Hi Everyone,

I have this week's new case file #128 for Color Stories Inspiration to share with you today.

Blue Skies
There's a soft and dreamy pastel colour palette in shades of mauve, green and blue to inspire you on this case file.  As well as the beautiful colour palette, I was inspired by the inspo word "blue" from the testimony for this LO and have journaled my thoughts on the back of my LO.

When I'm feeling a little down, I know I can go outside, find a quiet spot and take in my surroundings.  I always find something that will take my mind from my unhappy thoughts, be it a flower, a pretty little butterfly fluttering by, or the multitude of birds that flock to our 50 year old tree - but the sight that will instantly lift my spirits is a beautiful blue sky.  I don't know what it is, but there is something so joyful about seeing all that gorgeous expanse of blue - they do say the colour blue is calming, maybe that's it.

Evidence:  flowers, pearls, distressing, doily frame, punches
Testimony:  inspo word "blue" journaling on back of LO.

Aren't these french lace flowers from Manor House Creations just gorgeous!!
The country roses are a firm favourite.
