colourQ 295

Tuesday, June 16, 2015

The weather has been so fantastic around here that I have been totally neglecting my stamp room!  I can't possibly justify holing myself up inside when the sun is shining, the temperatures are warm and the flowers and veggies need watering.  But I did manage to get inside a time or two to make a card for today's colourQ palette!

This one is pretty CAS and I'm sure you recognize the CAS(E) This Sketch layout! When I started making this card I was going to use an entirely different floral image stamped in shades of pink than the one you see here but changed my mind at the last minute.  There was a piece of vellum hanging around my desk and when I saw it I thought that it would look pretty embossed in gold with this image instead.

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other colourQ designers cards this week!
