CQC #153~ Sending You Hugs!

Hello! If you're here for the Dynamic Duos challenge please scroll down; this is my second post today! I actually started this card a couple of days ago and just got around to finishing it! Not a lot of mojo going on this week but I managed to finish this one. I was following the Retro Sketch but missed the deadline ~ shucks! But I'm on time for the ColourQ thank goodness!


I layered my coral panel onto the pretty soft blue than topped that with a sweet gingham from Lily Bee Design. Next I added a tiny strip of coral paper to my white panel and wrapped it with twine. I popped this up with foam tape and added it to my card.  A few thoughtful words and the small sunflower from the PTI Simple Sunflowers set complete the picture. Well almost...I had to add a few sparky blue gems! 


Thanks for stopping by! I hope you'll join me tomorrow for the debut of the new blog The Creative Paper Trade ~Lisa

Lisa I love gingham like you love polka dots. This is such a fantastic card, I adore your sunflower and that yummy twine around the base. I missed Retro Sketches last too, it happens. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the colourQ!
