cQc #254 ~ U...R...Sweet!

Well hello and a happy Tuesday! Ready for a new color palette from the ColourQ? Just wait until you see the variety from the design team, those gals just knock my socks off! I tried something a little different today,  sure hope you like it!



After die cutting the sentiment (Whimsy Stamps, brown letters - Hero Arts) and PTI leaves, I had them laying on the white panel that I knew I would be placing on the Coastal Cabana card Base. What to do, what to do? I always like to bring a bit of my card base forward for good balance and flow. Suddenly one of those little lightbulbs appeared above my head ~ HA! I reached for my Henna embossing folder from DeNami Design and pierced some holes in select portions of the pattern. After adding a pair of wee MS butterflies, I was good to go!




I look forward to seeing how you use the colors this week. Take care ~Lisa

This is just gorgeous. I remember the first time I saw you use that EF and I put it on my Joann's wish list. It arrived last night--some coincidence that I am seeing it again. I love the way you poked out some of the holes.

Lisa, the colors are amazing but I am enthralled with your dry embossed background and pierced sections so the blue shows through. Brilliant! Visiting your blog always makes me happy...and inspired!
