CQC126 & DS40


Happy Tuesday!  It's ColourQ day and Arielle has a fun color challenge for us today!  Just check out these cute little place settings:


I chose not to focus on the owls this time around, but I did think that the colors begged for a natural theme!!  Here you go:


I don't normally find mushrooms too appealing on a card, but I thought these colors would be fun with the little mushrooms from Funky Four!  I stamped one in each of  three challenge colors and popped them up on an embossed oval from Designer Frames:



Using an assortment of polka-dotted DPs, I used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch, #40:


The other embellishments include some bakers twine and matching brads;  the card is note-card size; just perfect for a quick little thank you!  I hope you'll play along with these fun colors.  Be sure to share your creation with us at the CQC blog, and check out what the other designers created this week as well!  We can't wait to see them!  You may even be chosen as the ColourQ Queen!

We have learned to play "Ring-a-Round-a-Rosy"!!!  Of course, the falling down part is the best!

wow. Now I have to set my computer on my desk and try to do everything just like you did. You always put so much detail into your cards. I always stop too soon I guess.

I agree with you on the colors and a natural theme, BUT you knocked it out of the park, I love it!

As usual I'm loving your creations AND your other little giggly creation but my main reason for commenting was to congratulating you on winning the Spellbinder's goodies [geez, now I forget which blog it was and for what sketch/creation! duh!] but congrats anyhow!

Yes, falling down is the best part of the game - Cassidy is so sweet.
I like your card. What a great job with these difficult (for me anyways) colours. I like your use of the bakers twine and brads.

This card caught my eye right away. It is fantastic. I have this stamp set and have yet to use it. You have inspired me. I also really like the three brads on the bottom. This card is a work of art!

LeAnne, your card is just pure magic! I love it! And look at sweet Cassidy! So beautiful!

Marybeth said...

Sweet card LeAnne! I love all the polka dots you used and the cute mushrooms. That oval looks great too. I have a table by the window for the little ones too.
