cQc #298 ~ Thought of You...

Hey there bloggy friends!! We have a new palette up at ColourQ. I was inspired by the cute little cooler bag from the inspiration photo and the colors. Take a look...



This went together so fast once I got the idea! I simply cut a small strip of each color using my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 1 Die. Then I stacked them all up in the order shown on the cooler bag and adhered them to a 3" x 3" white panel stamped with a PTI sentiment. I added a layer of fun foam to the back before it went on the 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card base.

You know...it IS driving me bonkers that the last two strips are not lined up. They're to the right just a smidgen and I keep staring at it LOL!! It's hand made Lisa, it's handmade ~ OY!



Still, it's cute as can be and suitable for guys or gals! And since I've repeated the die cut, I'll be entering this at CASology! Pop over to the CQC blog to see what my teammies have to share and then come play along with us! ~Lisa

Love everything about this adorable card! You can't even tell that the lines are off a bit, but I completely know how it is when your eye catches something like that during the process. It can drive you bonkers :) Happy Tuesday!

Either my eyesight really stinks, or it's not as obvious as you think... but I cannot see what you are talking about with the last two lines not being lined up! Oiy. I'd better get into the eye doctor soon - ha! I love this beautifully simple card in these GORGEOUS colors. It's perfect. ;-)

Super fun colors & brilliantly designed card, Lisa! My eyes must be off--looks perfect to me! I would have had trouble figuring out the color for the card front, but I love that it matches the bottom zigzag! Pinning this since I have a zigzag die that I love & need ideas to use it more!
