ColourQ 78

DSCF0257

It’s Tuesday, and that means another ColourQ challenge! Today’s soft colors had me running to some BG Porcelain paper……I just love candy colors like this:

And here’s my card:

CQC78_LeAnne-1

Although the pinks in this paper are a bit darker than the challenge, it was too pretty to pass up! (I just love to let the paper do the work!) I had the “lace” already cut from another project, so I added a little border ribbon of Whisper White, shabby flower & leaf (all from the BG paper), a bird cut from the Merry Details diecut, and I blinged it up with a line of rhinestones. A tiny bit of stamping on the corners of my Crumb Cake card with the vine from Fresh Cuts, and my card was done! We hope you can play along too with these yummy candy colors! Be sure to check back at the CQC blog to see what the designers and the participants have come up with! Happy Stamping!

LeeAnne I LOVE this card! That paperis gorgeous and so is that wonderful row of lacey-blingy goodness. I also love the "watermarked" branch on the cardbase. So super pretty! :)
