cQc #248 ~ Let's Celebrate!

Hi friends! I'm back with a the ladies of the ColourQ after a couple of weeks off for vacation. We have a great set of patriotic colors to work with this week.

I used another of my DPs from Authentique along with die cuts by PTI (star & flower) and RC (tag). I added a snippet of a paper doily that's aged with creamy brown chalk ink and a chunky Denami button. I love the font on this RC sentiment! I decided at the last minute to add the teeny star (DeNami Design) and am so happy I did! I think it helps to pull all of the colors together. Before adding them, it seemed the big blue star was just sort of out there on it's own. Funny how something so tiny can have such a big impact.



I can't wait to see how you are inspired by the colors this week! 
Have yourself a delightful day ~Lisa
