cQc #306 ~ Bouquet of Love!

Hello! Wow did the summer ever fly by. I'm not ready to let it go. But it's already the first of September and some of the leaves have begun to change. I suppose fall is coming whether I'm ready for it or not!! To lift my so long summertime spirits, I made a little floral (Endless Creations) card for this week's ColourQ challenge.

Using my Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Banner Duo 2 die to hold my sentiment and focal point turned out better than I expected! There's a layer of fun foam under it for dimension. But I set the circle back in deep for added interest! I stamped a pretty Impression Obsession vine horizontally on my card. Next I laid the die on the card, masked off the card front, then stamped the vine again so that things matched up. The stitched circle is from DeNami Design and the sentiment also by IO. I couldn't let the polka dots (mine are by DeNami Design) from the inspiration photo go unrecognized!! The ribbon and button weren't planned. They cover a boo boo on the stitched circle ~ shhh!

Upon the advice of my sweet blogging friend Darnell, I will be entering this at the Tag You're It challenge! Thanks Darnell!!



For the record, I would love a pair of these PJs, aren't they cute!! 
Have a blessed day friends ~Lisa

None of us believe you could make a boo-boo, Lisa, but you've hidden it beautifully! Just fabulous, delicate, and then a bit of wow-ee with the polkas! PJs are super cute!

Fall is definitely in the air here in Seattle. We actually had a huge wind and rainstorm go through over the weekend and it's raining again today. My garden is loving the moisture - so dry! But we are still not ready for school to start next week! Summer flew by way too fast! Love your sweet card! :)

Gasp! How do you do it, Lisa?! Masterpiece after masterpiece! I just adore this card & I "need" that IO vine now! The button & ribbon treatment puts this over the top, in my book--great boo boo--LOL PS--I love those PJs, too!
