cqc #206 ~ A Little Birdie Told Me!

Hi there peeps!! Time for a new color story at the ColourQ. Arielle is really breaking me in here with another bright color palette!! I don't often reach for a lot of bright colors. But you know...it's nice to step out my comfort zone, put on the big girl pants and go for it now and again!!! Check out this vibrant birthday card..

I have a confession to make today. I've become slightly addicted to embossing folders ~ ha!! But just look how fun it made this card. And I am seriously smitten with tin pins too, sort of been hoarding some I bought last year at the stamping convention LOL!!! Okay come on people you know I'm not the ONLY one who hoards little pretties!! 

That's all from me today!
Can't wait to see what you make with the new colors!
Until then friends ~Lisa
