{CQC#131 RS#6} Hello and Happy Easter!


Hello Peeps! 
Wishing you all a very blessed Easter!

I'm playing along with the Colour Q Challenge again and recently discovered Arielle Gordon's Retro Sketches Challenge to go right along with it!  


My card base is a standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2" with So Saffron as the base.  On top of that I've layered a piece of  Basic Grey designer paper with the perfect challenge colors.  It's from this 6 x 6 paper pad and could be one of my all time favorites. . .

The old style typewriter stamp is a cling set by Hero Arts, appropriately titled "My Type".  I used Versafine black onyx ink on Stampin' Up naturals white cardstock and then cut around the image.  It's popped up on dimensionals on top of the blushing bride flag.  And, of course, I can't seem to create a card anymore with adding a button and baker's twine to finish it off!





 and, as always, the inside too . . .



I'm happy you hopped by today!

What a creative way to use the colors in a non-floral way! Of course, you know I LOVE all your stuff and now I am going to have to find some of that paper myself because I love it too! Thanks for playing with the ColourQ challenge this week! Happy Easter, my friend!

I just love that typewriter image!!! The background patterned paper really goes perfectly with the vintage typewriter. So glad you joined us this week at RetroSketches!

Such a great vintage-y card, and I really like how you purtied up the inside too. ;) Love that paper, and the old-fashioned typewriter goes so well with it.
