ColourQ 90 & Mojo 196

DSCF0151

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s ColourQ time!  Here is the fun color challenge Arielle has given us today:

cqc90

These colors could lend themselves to so many images---I hope you’ll take the challenge and put your spin on them.  I chose a little digital image from Arielle along with the Mojo Monday 196 sketch:

and here’s my card:

For some reason, I really struggled with this card—it just didn’t come together as easily as I would have liked!  I did some paper piecing with Poppy Parade Patterns DP on the little quilt as well as the pincushion from SU’s Sew Suite set; some embossing and a punched border and I printed the sentiment teeny tiny so I could use the sentiment flag from Laura!  I think it bothers me that the pins cause my Brilliant Blue panel to pucker…..but, as my boss used to say, “It is what it is!”

Thanks for visiting today!  Any questions, give me a shout!

..LOVE YOUR BLOG! ...just a thoought about your pucker. Did you stick the pins through the back threads of the button, then use a glue dot? That may help. OMG I can't believe I'm trying to give advice to the "master"!! Forgive me!

What a 'cool' card for a hot day...I'm going to have to get that EF - it's such a great look. And Miss Cassidy - LOVE THAT CHILD!
I'm tempted to print off this pic to tape to my computer - her little face just brightens my day.
Hugs to you both!

What a CUTIE that Cassidy is. What a look! You sure catch some darling shots. BTW - I like your card too LeAnne. I don't see these pukers you're referring too? I like the brick - is it a texture plate? Going to Laura's link now. Have a great day!

Hi LeAnne, I fit those pages in there by trimming my 12X12 paper down a little before I start so there is more room in the page protector. And I always stand my albums up straight instead of laying them down. That way they don't get squished.

Love your card! too cute!
