colourQ #159 & RS #33



Another awesomely inspiring palette at the colourQ this week.  Isn't that owl the cutest?




I have a few October birthdays to make cards for so I thought that these Halloween colours would be fun to use.  I just got my L'il Inkers Stitched Sentiment Flag Die in the mail so it was the perfect chance to use it.  I decided to use this week's RetroSketch for my design and I die cut a series of 5 different patterned papers with the die.  I adjusted the length showing of each pattern by using a curtain at the top of the card embellished with two cardstock rick rack strips.



We hope that you come a play with us this week at the colourQ and while you are there make sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the Design Team to see their fabulous creations.
