ColourQ129 & RetroSketch 3

DSCF0008
Happy beautiful Tuesday!  Spring has certainly sprung in SE PA and Arielle has a beautiful spring color combo for us today:
cqc129
Yum yum!!!  These cookies are too cute to eat (not!)!!!!  Here’s my confection:
CQC129-LeAnne
I gave my Big Shot a good workout with this card, using a couple folders and the Little Leaves and Tasteful Trim dies.  I gave my corner a nice big rounding after learning from Kay Kalthoff that you can use your circle punches to round corners!  WHO KNEW???  You can see her nice video here!!!  Thanks, Kay!  What a sweetie to share this tip!  The polka dot stamp from Best Friends Forever was used to add a little interest to my Wisteria Wonder leaves, too. 
I used the sketch from Retrosketches 3:
Any questions, give me a holler!  Hop on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the other designers did with this glorious combination of hues!  And we can’t wait to see what you come up with too!

Thanks for all the well wishes for my cold, too…it’s getting better, but I still can’t taste or smell anything!  Hopefully I’ll get back around to visiting & commenting on everyone’s blogs real soon!

Your card is beautiful, LeAnne! The wall you created is fabulous as well as what you put in front of it. Sorry you have a cold, glad you weather is getting nicer and your photo of Cassidy tells me she is growing up too fast! Have a wonderful day!

I guess... great mind think alike when it comes to challenges! ;) Thanks for popping by my blog, the neutral color scheme was helpful pulling me back int holiday cards! This is GORGEOUS! The RS sketch is perfect with this, I love the unique feel the bricks embossing folder gives to the blue, and that trailing vine is just so pretty :) big hugs! I hope you feel better soon! This has been the worst winter/spring for illness we've ever had, yuck! Take care of yourself, get some rest. <3 Cassidy is precious!

Love this card. I have the Little Leaves but I can't get the Big Shot to cut it for me. What am I doing wrong?

Carol L said...

I love those spring colors, such a pretty card! And what a darling expression on Cassidy's pretty little face! She's just the dearest little girl :) I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed watching her grow since she was born! You're so blessed :)

Love your card LeAnne! The vine on the brick texture is really lovely! Thanks for playing along with us at Retrosketches!

Such fantastic texture on this beauty, LeAnne. I love the look of the vine climbing up the "brick" wall, and the rounded corner is just the right finishing touch.

Such fabulous colours LeAnne and I love the way your branch appears to be growing behind the main panel. Thanks for your lovely comment on my ColourQ entry - I'm glad you dropped by because I'd forgotten to link it! (Another senior moment!)
