cQc #340 ~ Love...

Hi there! It's time for a new color palette at ColourQ. This one is fresh and pretty, I think you'll like it! I made this card on Sunday and then saw the Muse challenge yesterday. Michele (love her!!) is this week's Muse and she used lilacs on her card. I think this just might work!! I was inspired by her lilacs, the embossed circle and the thin border of color she added to the left side of her card.


At first glance you might not see the red on my card. Look closely at the buds at the ends of the lilacs and some of the open blooms. I used my Copics to blend multiple colors on the lilac blooms. As far as I know there aren't red lilacs,  I took some artistic liberties here!! The sentiment and fern are from PTI and the pretty lilacs is Impression Obsession. I sprinkled on a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins


My in house critic said he REALLY likes this one!!
That does it for me today, thanks for taking a peek! ~Lisa
