cQc #232 ~ Thank You!

Hi there! Ready for another challenge at the ColourQ? Arielle has thrown a little twist into the palette this week and I think you're going to love it! Black, Kraft , Lucky Limeade & Newsprint! Yep that's right one of your "colors" is newsprint, fun huh!



I pulled a couple of MME papers to get things rolling for my card. I'm smitten with this sweet floral and wanted to let as much of it show as possible. My newsprint, also containing the striped banner and fancy oval label, is layered over it. I topped the existing banner with a hand cut sentiment (PTI) banner. A leaf sprig (PTI:turning a new leaf) stamped in Versamark ink was tucked in along with some Top Dog Die flourishes.

And there you have it! Now hurry yourselves along to create your entry! Can't wait to see what's in the gallery this week. You all continue to blow us away and make the voting very difficult!! ~Lisa
