cQc #302 ~Sending You Smiles!

Hi there! I'm back in action with a new post for ColourQ! No stamping for a couple of weeks made me feel a bit rusty. Hopefully I'll get back into the groove again now that the unpacking is done and those numerous loads of laundry are behind me! 


I started with a MME DP that had most of my colors. It's layered on vellum and then the card base. A strip of peach polka dot paper was cut with my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Borders 3 die. I've used PTI's Simple Sunflowers set for my focal and sentiment. The center of my sunflowers are layered in PPP Marshmallow (4mm & 6mm) sequins.


I hope you have time to play along with us this week. 
Be sure to check out the lovelies from my teammates! 
Have a delightful day ~Lisa

It always takes me a while to get back into the stamping groove when I've been away from it. The first card always feels awkward. This card is a beauty though. Love the use of the patterned paper and the vellum layer is such a nice touch. Must remember that...
