Hey, peeps!  Happy Tuesday----at least Monday was a nice day!  Mother Nature is so fickle this spring!  I have to enjoy my flowers inside today, gazing at this beautiful dress Arielle chose for the ColourQ challenge today:
And here is my skinny little CAS card:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings ColourQ238 Stampin CAS

I used an older Verve floral set, embossing each flower in white embossing powder, then adding button centers, sewn on with matching floss.  The sketch is an almost-exact case of the Clean and Simple sketch 290 from this week:

I used an older There She Goes stamp for the center:


I hope you’ll play along with these pretty spring colors…show us your creation at the ColourQ blog and be sure to stop by to see what the other courtiers created as well!

Yesterday was a perfect day for hanging clothes on the line….or pretending that the clothesbasket was a bathtub:


And then figuring out you can tip it over!!!



Enjoy your day!

OH goodness that is a pretty card! I love the simplicity of it.
Your granddaughter and my cats love laundry baskets. LOL I would love to have a close line. I have a huge yard but not a good spot on the place.
Have a great day.

Oh that looks like so much fun Cassidy. So fun that you can be outside again playing and enjoying the sunshine. I love the smell of laundry after it has been hanging outside - wish I could hang mine outside too;)
Such a pretty card today. I like the white embossing and the button centers on these flowers.

I love how these flowers and the rounded corners give this card a cool retro look!

I love this, LeAnne! Those pretty pops of color are beautiful against that pretty white space. And the little leaves and embossed edge -- perfect finishing touches. Gorgeous card!
