ColourQ 100


WOW!  Did you catch my heading?  ColourQ is celebrating their 100th challenge!  In honor of this momentous event, Arielle is teaming up with Clean & Simple Stamping and highlighting their Fall to Layout sketch this week:


In addition, we get to use our favorite past ColourQ combo.  Now that’s not possible to use just ONE, because I have tons of favorites!  But I did pull out one I had never used before, from way back when Arielle first started, CQC14.  Here ya go:


The florals on this little dress jumped out at me—they looked like the florals from Fabulous Florets and Array of Sunshine.  So what do you think:


I made my own designer paper with the various images from those two sets, masking off the flowers as I stamped.  The two Orchid images had an empty center, so I stamped a little flower from Itty Bitty Bits to fill them in.  The sentiment is from Pennant Parade and fits perfectly in a little flower punched from the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer punch.  I had to keep reminding myself that it was supposed to be CAS, so my only other embellishments were some buttons! 


I sure hope you will play along with us for this extra-special occasion!  Fly on over to the CQC blog to see all the deets as well as what the other designers came up with this week.  It’s sure to be fun, seeing all the different combos!  Thanks for visiting!
