cQc #366 ~ It's the Little Things...

Happy November! Ahhhh, I love this time of year! Trees ablaze with color, squirrels scampering about collecting their winter stash of food and all things to make their nest extra cozy, a falling leaf twirling it's way to the ground only to be sent aloft by a gentle autumn breeze that carries with it that wonderful scent of autumn. All of those little things sometimes taken for granted as life gets busy. But they matter just as much as the big stuff.
 
 

I used lots of little things on this week's ColourQ card. The smallest of the three Photo Frames dies by Pretty Pink Posh was used to cut my rust polka dot paper. I stamped a few PTI Beautiful Blooms II small flowers to be framed then added my little things sentiment (Amuse) with foam tape. A trio of punched (MS) butterflies added a little movement. See those little loops on the flowers in the inspiration photo? I think my embossed panel mimics them quite nicely!!


Okay, your turn! Can't wait to see what you design with this week's colors! Have a beautiful November day ~Lisa

Autumn is my favorite time of year, Lisa, and one I'll miss if my husband wins out in his desire to move to warmer climate. Your little autumnal colored card is so cute with it texture and movement. I always have difficulty with color challenges but you have pulled it off beautifully.
