cQc #368 ~ Happy Thanksgiving!

Autumn greetings!! It's time for a new challenge at ColourQ and we have a lovely autumn palette this week. I had a complete creative block after stamping a couple of leaves and fussy cutting them. So I put them down and walked away! A couple of hours latter those barricades were removed and I came up with this!



Two Pretty Pink Posh small Scallop Squares were die cut then adhered together. After adding them to my card base, I stamped an Impress sentiment. I love the font on this! The leaves (Rubber Monger) were added with adhesive on their centers only. I wanted the curve and depth on them to remain. I also added some speckles from the Precious Remembrance Shop's Fall Colors stamp set to them. A few buttons and it was complete!


I hope you'll join us this week. 
The team always loves seeing your cards in the gallery! ~Lisa

It seems I've been doing that a lot lately, Lisa. Making an element for a card and then not knowing how to implement it. I think using that frame worked wonderfully with those beautiful leaves.

This gorgeous card just proves it's worth walking away and coming back to an idea later, Lisa ... it's so delicate and dreamy ... and so very pretty! Hugs, Anita :)

This is so very pretty. Those leaves are why people go leaf peeping in the fall--simply stunning.
