ColourQ 138

Hello!

As soon as I saw the ColourQ colours this week, I knew I had to make a card using them. It is a wonderful colour combo. Take a look:
I would LOVE a pair of shoes like that! (And I'm not a "shoe" person).

The card I made was for a young friend's baptism today. I wanted it to be pretty and special. This is what I came up with.
My eldest daughter was raving about this card even before I finished it. THEN she realised it was the card for her friend and she was jumping with joy. Later today she lamented that the cards we really like, we give away, LOL!

I used PTI Basic White card. SU! ink in Crumb Cake, Pure Poppy, More Mustard, and Pool Party. Stamps are PTI Botanical Silhouettes, Tiny Tags II, and Hero Arts Say It All. The ribbon is Pool Party seam binding. This is the first time I've used seam binding, and I'm hooked. It's so soft and makes a BEAUTIFUL bow. 

Thanks for dropping by!

This is a stunner Michelle! No wonder your daughter fell in love with it. Tose colours are so vibrant against the white background and really "pop".

This really is lovely! I have such a hard time with that set of stamps but you've worked them effortlessly. The tiny tag is such. Sweet touch too. :)
And I'll try and get a picture of the octopus for you if he'll come out of his cave for a photoshoot! :)
