ColourQ 58


Woohoo, I actually got to do the ColourQ challenge this week!  It’s not a rip-roaring, uber-creative, knock-your-socks-off card, but I enjoyed creating it for my ex-SIL who just had some surgery.  So here’s the palette:


I had PTI’s Wreath for All Seasons set laying on my desk from another project, so I just went with it, along with the Mojo Monday sketch 64 from this week:


And here’s the card:


The recipient is not a fussy, frilly kind of gal, so I think this will appeal to her.  It uses a mixture of PTI sets, some BG and SU papers and retired SU ribbon.  Lots of sponging gives it a rustic look.  TFL!  And here’s a picture of Cassidy:


This is from the weekend….poor little thing had a bad tummyache yesterday and just wanted to be held all day!

  • Stamps:  Wreath for All Seasons, Autumn Abundance, Text Style Background Basics, PTI
  • Paper:  Confetti White, Cajun Craze, So Saffron, Always Artichoke Patterns II DP, BG Kraft
  • Ink:  Early Espresso, So Saffron, Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake
  • Acc:  Circle Nesties, Button & thread, Grosgrain Ribbon (ret), Daubers, Lots of Tags Diecut

love how you used nesties to cut out the center of the wreath.
To look at little miss Cassidy, you would never know she was ever anything except happy.

I thought you said this wouldn't knock my socks off! I think it's brilliant, from the balance of color to that gorgeous wreath to the use of the dp with the sketch. Lovely job, LeAnne!

Oh wow, love this one, too! I like how you cut out the middle of the wreath and stamped the mat to let the text show through! Nice touch!
