Can you believe that it's already time for another challenge over at Just Add Ink?

This week has flown by in a haze of illness here. What started out as migraines ended up as a middle ear infection in both ears for me causing me to be quite dizzy and off balance. Then Claudia came down sick today with vomiting and high temperatures. I am not sure if it is a bug or a reaction to some vaccination needles she had yesterday. Either way it meant a day at home hanging out on the couch for both of us.

I have managed to get a few cards done and this week's challenge card was one of them! If you would like to play along, here is the gorgeous colour combo.
I also combined the colour challenge with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch challenge . This is the sketch.

And here is my card. I have used the new Delicate Doilies stamp from Stampin' Up! which will be available on 1st September.
Stamps: Delicate Doilies by SU!, sentiment stamp by Papertrey Ink.
Cardstock: Cajun Craze, Peach Parfait, Bashful Blue, Very Vanilla
Ink: Cajun Craze, Bashful Blue, Groovy Guava (I didn't have the peach!)
Other: Scallop circle punch, border punch and circle punch all by Stampin' Up!
