The new palette at colourQ inspired me to make a Valentine. No surprise considering the colors were inspired by these adorable treat boxes.
The pumpkin pie was a bit of a stumper for me and I wondered how I was going to add it to my card. I ended up throwing some orange sequins in my little shaker. It's subtle but I like how it adds a bit of fun color to the shades of red and pink.
My sketch is based on the newest one at Fusion. I had seen a few shaker cards recently (including one from the Fusion design team) so I thought I'd make one of those. I made one before for a baby shower and it was a big hit with the recipient so I thought one for a Valentine would be cute! And lo and behold, Virginia's View Challenge is to make a shaker card!
Another snow storm hit yesterday and left about a foot of snow behind. After last week's blizzard I can't seem to catch a break! I just keep repeating the mantra "spring is coming, spring is coming." I know it's true but it sure doesn't feel that way right now.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you take some time to join us at colourQ! The ladies there have made some beautiful cards for you to see!
