How’s everyone doing on this Tuesday?  Okay, I hope!  It’s time for another ColourQ challenge from Arielle!  I am loving this combo…what do you think?


This purse probably wouldn’t be BIG enough for all of my junk, but it sure is cute!  I made a fairly simple card (cuz I am still fighting my cold) using Triple Treat Flower stamped in Versamark and Summer Starfruit, then heat embossed with clear EP:


Since it was pretty simple, I added some texture with the Fancy Fan embossing folder as well as the Delicate Designs folder and matching Edgelit.  The piercing templates make adding a little border easy as pie!


I finished it off with a Midnight Muse Dahlia and some Summer Starfruit satin stitched ribbon.  I sure hope this palette inspires you to create something wonderful….share it with us over at the ColourQ so we can enjoy it as well!  And be sure to check out the other designers’ beautiful creations too!

Fun at Nottingham Park!
