{cQc #121} I'm here for you . . .


Woo Hoo!  We've made it to another weekend and time to stamp it up!  Today's card was created using the terrific colors in the Colour Q Challenge . . .



The base is kraft (crumbcake) cardstock that I stamped with the Stampin' Up! Linen background stamp.  I found a designer paper in my stash that reminded me of the inspiration photo in the cQc challenge photo.  Then I distressed, layered and stitched this to a piece of old olive.   The flower was created using the Stampin' Up 5 petal flower punch and more mustard cardstock.  The leaves were stamped and cut out of old olive.   I didn't have any riding hood red carstock but found some designer paper that was a close match to use instead.   This red strip is punched with the Stampin' Up mini heart border punch.   The sentiments are from the Stampin' Up! set Occasional Quotes.



That's all for today!  Wishing you all a nice relaxing weekend with time to do as you please!

Pam,
I'm in love with yet another one of your creations. I love the paper you chose. Love how well the yellow flower matches the paper. I love the verse.
Yes, you are so creative, I need to come to your house and learn how you do it!!! Na, I don't want to invest in all the supplies, I'll leave that to you.
Happy Saturday night... :)
