New Blog Design and SFYTT

It's been a long time again since I last posted but this summer is just going by so quickly! I'm sure you all can relate.

Some of you may have already noticed that I changed up my blog design again! I thought I would change it to showcase items that are available in the catalogue too and not just in digital form. I love this new designer paper Domestic Goddess and it has my two favourite in colours: pool party and calypso coral. Hope you guys like it!
This months SFYTT was quite a challenge for me because it contains a panel that is just off kilter. Normally I always straighten these panels but I thought I should really try to stick to the sketch and keep it on the diagonal. I did decide though to use the flower image from the new set Button Buddies because I didn't know how to stamp the image if it actually had a true direction (should I stamp it straight or on the diagonal too).

I think this card actually turned out pretty well. If nothing else, I am at least pleased I managed to not straighten the panel and it didn't look awful!

Stamps: SU Button Buddies, Delightful Dozen
Ink: SU melon mambo, old olive
Paper: SU ww, melon mambo, old olive, old olive dsp
Button: SU old olive designer button from brights pack
Brads: SU old olive brads from brights pack
Ribbon: SU white bakers twine
Misc: SU dimensionals

Great idea to keep the diagonal layer. It looks great. I love your color combo too!

Cute design! I love the focal image with a little slant. TFS.
