cQc #282 ~ God Bless You!

Hello friends did you have a happy Monday? We had a sunny one with warmer temps and it is "suppose" to hit 40 today...whoohoo heat wave LOL!!  Okay, enough about the weather, how about a card for the new palette at ColourQ.



I have a few layers of paper here, but this is really a pretty simple card. The focal panel is stamped with a birdcage by Impression Obsession. The blooms are colored with a colored pencil and the leaves a glitter Gelly Roll pen. This wonderful sentiment is by Inkadinkado, I think I picked it up at Hobby Lobby. I'm not sure about the addition of the flourish (MFT) die cut, but it's growing on me! After I added it, it looked lonely so I adhered the black rhinestone. Then it looked lonely so on went a few more!!



I'm so happy you took some time from your day to stop by. If you have a few more minutes, go say hello to my ColourQ teammates and see what prettiness they have to share today! ~Lisa

There is just a sweetness about this...from the sentiment to the image. I like the flourish, and the rhinestones are the perfect addition!

This is so very pretty. Each time I look I see something else I missed the first time. Of course, I love that birdcage--and the tiny flowers are so very sweet, and the enamel dots that are placed so perfectly, and how you hid that bit of newsprint on your scalloped border.

Greta said...

I think this came out perfect, Lisa! I love the use of the flourish--noticed it right off--& the black rhinestones are a beautiful embellishment!

Isn't it funny how we often just keep adding "one more" thing?! Love your "one more's" on this pretty card, Lisa. The text on your scalloped border is a nice touch!
