ColourQ 157

Happy Tuesday!  Since it’s the first Tuesday in October,  Arielle has chosen a special ColourQ palette for Breast Cancer month!  Check this out:

What a gorgeous shirt!!!  I had so many ideas swirling in my head…where to start?  I pulled out a past Sell-a-bration set called Fresh Vintage to make my  4 1/4” square card:

This also follows the sketch from CPS285:

which helped me in my choice of stamp set, because I knew those pretty postage stamp images would be perfect for this layout!  I also did some stamping on my embossed butterfly and added some black rhinestones:

I added a sentiment from Fabulous Phrases, then ran the stamped panel through my Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder for this pretty effect.  I sure hope you’ll play along with this special ColourQ challenge this week!  The other ColourQ courtiers have come up with some fun, special creations as well, so be sure to check them out at the ColourQ blog!

My friend and downline Laura sells these GORGEOUS mums….even Cassidy was impressed!

  4. Wow! What a color combo! I may try this, I have a friend who loves pink and I have tons of pink paper -- which is weird since it is not my favorite color! My colors are those gorgeous mums! Great photo, great card!

  13. LeAnne this is such a beautiful card and so true to the inspiration photo. Love the sketch you used for your card. Cassidy must just love to be outside like all kids. She is a doll! But you already know that.
