cQc #288 & RS #160~ I'll Be Here...

Hello and welcome! It's Tuesday and that means a new palette from ColourQ! I love the colors this week but will admit, this card was a loooooong time a comin'!! Working in the Bermuda Bay was giving me fits until I finally stumbled upon a shimmery scallop circle by The Paper Company I've had forever. The Retro Sketches challenge provided me with the idea for my design.


I layered a couple of DPs with my shimmery find. They were all die cut with PPP Stitched Borders 1 Dies, then added to a white panel. Mama Elephant's: In My Heart stamp & die sets seemed perfect with the papers I chose. Everything was added to a kraft card base along with a couple of little banners. They are sort of a substitute for the tail of the speech bubble in the sketch.



That's a wrap fro me today. Pop on over to the cQc blog to see what the DT has to share then get inky and link up with us!! Have a delightful day friends ~Lisa
