RS181 and CQC


Happy Thursday, peeps!  Another sympathy card today, this one using Arielle’s Retrosketches sketch and the ColourQ color palette, neither of which I’ve played with in quite a while:

First, I flipped the sketch so my little bird wouldn’t be staring off into space!  I used a Sahara Sand card base and stamped the Dictionary background stamp on it with Versamark so it wasn’t too dark.  Then I went to work on my elements:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Bird Sympathy

I had a scrap of textured Soft Sky in my scrap pile, so I stamped it with a MFT Distressed Background Blocks stamp, then added a diecut bird and some diecut leaves from the same Lawn Fawn set as yesterday’s card:


Same Petite Pairs sentiment too, since it was already on my desk!  Thanks for visiting today!



  1. So sweet! I love that little bird and the background stamping. The ribbon has always been one of my favorites…I think I still have a little bit somewhere! Cassidy is looking the a big girl these days!

  2. Beautiful card! I have been stopping by but I still get the message that you don't get my comments. So I only leave them once in a while now. But you know I always love your cards. And I especially love seeing your sweet little Cassidy.

  3. Great job with this week's sketch and colors LeAnne! I like the little bird perched on the pretty stitched leaves.Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!

  4. So pretty, LeAnne, so nice to see you at the colourQ again!

  5. This is beautiful LeAnne. I'm really liking this colour combo and those wonderful stitched leaves.
