{cQc#100 & FTL#155} You Make Me Oh So Very Happy!

Would you believe Arielle Gordon has posted a Colour Q Challenge every week for 100 weeks?!  I've participated as often as I could, but I know I've missed out on several that really caught my eye...such as this one from week #76.  I *love* this bright and happy color combination so created this *happy* card to share with all of you.  I hope you like it!  

To celebrate the 100th Colour Q Challenge, they have teamed up with the Clean and Simple Sketch Challenge using the Fall to Layout #155 shown below.    Double the pleasure...Double the FUN!  : )

My card is the standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" using old olive as the base.  I've layered on early espresso and daffodil delight along with a piece of "kiwi kiss" designer paper by K & Company. {Designer Tim Coffey Mat Pad}.   I've distressed the edges a bit with Versafine Vintage Sepia, stitched the layers together with my Janome Sew Mini, and added the brown twill ribbon, bakers twine and buttons.

The sweet *happy* sentiment is a M's stamp from their dollar bin.  I can never pass those up!  ;)

 inside was finished to coordinate with the front,
 but left blank for personal message.

Since we're celebrating the 100th Colour Q Challenge, I can't resist sharing a couple of my cards that were chosen in the past.  I was "crowned" Colour Q Queen way back in week #14.  Here is my card for that challenge and my original post

And one of my cards was selected again in Week 79!

Goodness, I got a little carried away on this post, didn't I? hee hee   Hopefully, you've been inspired and feel like stamping up a little something today too!  

I'm happy you stopped by!
