ColourQ79 & JUGS78


It’s Tuesday, and that means ColourQArielle has challenged us with this delightfully fresh color combo today:


I wish I had cute little legs so I could wear this pretty outfit!! LOL!  But I have to satisfy my desire with making a card!  We have a close friend from church who is struggling with breast cancer, so I combined the colors with SU’s new Strength & Hope and Four Frames sets to make a card for her.  They are both beautiful sets, but SU will be donating $2 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every Strength & Hope set that’s sold…another great reason to add it to your collection.  Anyway, I used the JUGS sketch 78:


and here is my card:


I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the sentiment block on the circular panel, inking it in Melon Mambo and stamping once on my scrap paper so the color would be lighter.  The butterfly was stamped in Melon Mambo also, cut out, then smooshed into a Versamark pad and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder:


I just LOVE these colors together---this will be one of my favorites for sure!  I even used a few leftover flowers to adorn the inside of my card as well:


I sure hope you’ll be able to play along with them too; why don’t you flutter on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the other courtiers have come up with?  And share your creation as well!

LeAnn, this is just gorgeous! I love, love, LOVE that color combo and can't wait to try it out this week! Such a beautiful card for your friend. I'm sure she will love it. :)

Eeek, look at those itty-bitty feet!! Too stinkin' cute!

Elise said...

Sorry, but THIS card is MUCH cuter than those little legs and skirt {but I had the VERY same thought when I saw it, in fact, I'm pretty sure I HAVE that skirt, but I wouldn't be caught dead wearing it in PUBLIC anymore... THAT'S sad!} Anywhoo, I digress, ADORABLE use of the JUGS sketch, my dear! YOU know how awesome it is when you show your talented wares with "the girls" - LOVE it!

{Now, let's not even bring those lil' feets into the discussion - just NOT fair, to anyone! Yeeeee Heeeee! I kind of miss not having one of those lil' dumplings any more...} *sob!* XOXO!

Ruby said...

Gorgeous card! I just love how you've done the inside as well, beautiful!
