ColourQ41

Ooh, lala!! Wait until you see the bold color inspiration Arielle has chosen this week! I immediately ran to my fabric cupboard when I saw this:

I knew I had some black and hot pink felt, along with a piece of gray heather wool that I picked up at a yard sale for a dime!! I pulled out some dies and went to work:

Again this week, not much stamping (hangs head low)….but with the impact this flower makes, you don’t need much! I used the scraps from the flowers to diecut some additional little circles and blinged everything up!!! The card base is Pretty in Pink, the mat is SU’s retired Bride’s DP. Dies used were Nestie Blossom and SU’s Flower Layer 3. The little pink center is from the Sweet Pea felt flowers from the last mini! “Sweet” is from the PTI Cupcake Collection! I purposely left the inside blank, so that I could use this as the occasion arose! I just found out that this also qualifies for the Flourishes FTTC75, which is to use felt!

Now pop on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the Royal Court created this week!! You can also click on the blinkie on the sidebar! Come on and play along with us!!! You could be queen for a week! :D

Beautiful card, LeAnne! when I saw these colors all I could think of was the story about the flannel elephant! Baby elephants are always pink and gray! I had a hard time getting that out of my mind!

Love that big bold flower! You changed your blog again-I almost didn't recognize it, lol! You probably did it weeks ago and I am just noticing now, sigh, sorry! But I love your card!

Love it, LeAnne. your going to get a lot of mileage out of that dime wool! I have an entire shelving unit of wool and I have yet to use it with my BS...pretty sad, huh?

LeAnne, I just think the layered felt flower is wonderful, but I literally gasped when I saw the row of felt circle with blingy center detailing! I think I can do that one! LOL! Thanks so much for playing FTTC!
