ColourQ34

Well, Arielle must have peeked into my life this weekend; two baby boy showers in one day (and a funeral), and these colors were very prominent in all the gifts!  Take a look at this sweet challenge:

This little giraffe just makes me want to pinch somebody’s cheek!  I had JUST borrowed Bundle of Joy from my friend Athena, and the little giraffe just jumped out of the box and said “stamp me!”….so I did:

I also used Jen’s sketch, turned on its side, shown here:

I used a lot of different papers here, but I am wishing I used a little more Kraft than just under the orange panel and the linen thread!!!  The little heart “buttons” were made by punching two holes in a scrap of cardstock with a 1/16” punch, then centered SU’s small heart punch over the holes and punching out the heart.  Sponge the edges for some depth, add a little piece of linen thread, and you have instant buttons!  The card base was run through the Big Shot with the polka dot Texturz Plate, then I highlighted each embossed dot with some white Craft ink and a blender pen.  Truthfully, I am not too sure about this card…..maybe I am just worn out from all those baby showers! LOL!  But it is a cute image, and obviously, once those babies arrive, I’ll have a card all ready for at least one of them! 

Be sure to check out all the other ColourQ Royal Court designers by clicking on the blinkie found on my right side bar.  There are some CUTE samples today!  And I must say, all the submissions for the last couple of weeks to the CQC have been phenomenal!! You guys ROCK!

Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow for the Color Throwdown, too!  Yippee!  And if you need deets on the above card, email me….I am just too darned tired to post the ingredients!  Thanks for your patience!
