I just love today’s challenge---not only are these colors gorgeous, so is this little apron Arielle chose to inspire us today! I plucked some October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers out of my stash to make this little number:


I used this sketch from Get Sketchy:

Get Sketchy 51

and pulled out some neglected PTI sets, Vintage Picnic Sentiments and Mixed Messages. I totally cased my stampin’ idol Arielle with those little heart tags on my ribbon:


Those little doodads require patience!!! (Something that is hard to come by in my stamp room!!!) Well, I’m telling tales on myself….the central portion of the card are hearts punched out with SU’s small heart punch, but the polka dot image itself is a heart stamp from SU’s I {Heart} Hearts. I did substitute Real Red ink for Cherry Cobbler, only because it matched my DP better!!!

So hurry on over to the CQC blog so that you can play along and see what the other designers did with these sweet colors! Click on the sidebar to be whisked to the court!
