Revisiting Sahara Sand

I was watching a re-run of "Friends" yesterday and Joey had on a sahara sand & bashful blue coloured shirt and I thought to myself "I love that combo, tomorrow I am going to make a card with those colours." Then I remembered how much I loved sahara sand with pinks, so I decided to go that way. So while I was dusting off my Sahara ink pad, I decided to dust of my "Kind Word" stamp set too. I just loved this set when the new catty came out, but I hardly ever use it :(I would never usually combine a distressed edge with polka dots but I do not mind the way it has turned out at all. I have used the following challenges for this card

The Pink Elephant
- polka dots, bow & pink
Quixotic - ink up an old stamp
Crazy 4 Challenges - pretty in pink
Timeless Tuesday - the letter P
Midnight Madness - sketch
Recipe: Sahara sand, regal rose, pretty in pink, whisper white cardstock, polka dot background stamp, kind word stamp, 5 petal flower punch, filigree & soft subtles brads, pretty in pink taffeta ribbon, various inks and blender pen for colouring

Love your card Leonie! I love that colour combo as well but haven't used it ages. I might have to dust those colours off myself, as well as that stamp set. Well done, perfect card for that sketch.
