cQc #317 ~ Hi There!

Hi there friends! I'm back today as promised with our new palette from ColourQ! I will admit this one took a bit of thinking for me. I decided the best way for me to use the colors was to keep it as simple as possible. 


I started by stamping the Precious Remembrance Shop leaves onto a white panel. Then I decided to cut it with the RC tag. I layered the lilac tag under it and placed the sentiment there. Embossing my card base with the birch trees was a last minute decision. But I'm glad I did, it gave me a place to add a little more of the blue. I used a tiny bird from IO. 


Hope you like it! I'm so happy you could stop by today ~Lisa

I'm still totally loving those leaves, and your background is gorgeous! Great job with this palette! I miss ColourQ so much. A long time ago, I got my feelings hurt, deleted their website from my blog list, and haven't been back. Love to see they still inspire so many!
