Good morning, peeps!  Tuesday again, with another fabulous ColourQ challenge.  Check out this palette, using some of SU’s new In Colors:

SU’s Moonlight mini DSP pad had lots of patterns with these colors in it, so I took my cue from the gray grid paper, mounting it on a Smoky Slate base:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings ColourQ258 Fabulous Four Stampin Up

I just pulled out some scraps from the same pad and started making banners of different widths and lengths; I added a piece of silver washi from the All is Calm series, a piece of retired Stitched ribbon, and finally, a leaf diecut with the Autumn Accents Bigz die.  I folded it in half and put it through my crimper, then sponged the ridges:


I did stamp a few more speckles with the Gorgeous Grunge set on the grid paper, too!  The large sentiments from the set Fabulous Four are perfect for cards like this, so I chose the birthday one….I think this will be great for a guy….what do you think?  Hope you’ll play along with us this week….be sure to check out all the samples from our fabulous designers as well!

Cassidy giving her doll a ride on her new bike (pre-cast!!!).  She is still afraid to ride it herself!


Enjoy your day!


  1. Very pretty. I like what you have done with the colors.
    Cute pic of Cassidy.

  2. Once she gets going on that bike, she'll never want to stop;)
    Pretty use of banners on this card. I love the crimped leaf too.
    PS - How's it going today with Cassidy and her cast. I believe this is the first day she's with you since she got it?

  3. Love your card, the crimped leaf is awesome. Hope that Cassidy is mending well, casts are a bummer!

  4. I love the mix of playful patterns on your layers of banners! And your crimped leaf is a nice touch!

  5. Fabulous :) love all the patterns you put together, amazing design!

  6. LOVE the sweet layers, GORGOEUS!! I played along with your ColourQ, YAY!!!!

  7. What a beautiful way to show off these lovely papers!
