ColourQ135 & Retro Sketches 9

DSCF0469

Happy Tuesday, happy  May Day!  I combined the ColourQ colors today:

with the Retro Sketches sketch 9:

for my creation this week:

CQC135-LeAnne

One of my customers just ordered this Fashionable Hearts embosslit, and that got me thinking that it would be a good choice for these fun colors!  I also used the Scalloped Heart of Hearts embosslit and the heart Adorning Accents embossing folder!  In fact, there’s a lot more embossing on here than there is stamping!  The only stamping is the sentiment from Trendy Trees and the heart from Itty Bitty Bits.  Some Early Espresso baker’s twine “ties” it all together, and a little Sharpie-colored rhinestone adds a little bling:

The ColourQ courtiers have such a fun bunch of samples, you need to check them all out at the ColourQ blog!  I hope you’ll play along with us too! Can’t wait to see what you create!

Cassidy cornered Grampy sitting in the doorway while she was showing him some of her new toys…..the opportunity was just too inviting, so she got a book and said “sit” and she sat in his lap!
