ColourQ18

Arielle from ColourQ once again asked me to be the guest designer!!! Woohoo!  Two weeks in a row!  The inspiration was so sweet, and I had so many ideas in my head, but I had limited supplies as I wanted to make this over the weekend while at the retreat, so I made do with what I had.  Here’s the CUTE inspiration (where does she come up with these?):

cqc18and since I did have my little Buttons diecut with me, I thought I’d make a flower from them, along with some other punches and embellishments:
