cQc #123 & FMS #21 ~ Just Because!

Hello! I have a sweet little card to share today for my entry in the ColourQ challenge this week. Would you just look at this adorable inspiration photo from Arielle...too cute! The only owl I have is pretty small, so I opted to let the playful colors, hearts and gloss of the cookies inspire my card.



I'm also playing along with Freshly Made Sketches this week; a new challenge for me! The design of my card is pretty self explanatory since I followed their sketch. This sassy little girl is a Stamping Bella stamp. She's colored with a combination of markers, and colored pencils. Her skin is done with my one and only flesh tone Copic marker ~hee! I've added some glitter and gloss to her ~ love her little boots! Now about this tiny rose print paper. I can't tell you the maker; but I've been HOARDING two 6x6 sheets for YEARS!  Now I'm down to 1 & 2/3...can I bear it??? Snippets of ribbon, trim and buttons from my stash along with a Quickutz itty bitty tag add a bit of playfulness. And this little sentiment is a Savvy Stamp.

That's it for me friends...have a blessed day ~Lisa

This card is lovely! Awesome job on coloring this sweet little girl. I love the buttons and ribbon and lace. I know what you mean about hoarding 'vintage' paper. If I find out that some paper I have is no longer available, I find myself trying to avoid using it, especially if it's pretty! ;-) Beautiful job with the ColourQ colors, Lisa. ;-)
