It's ColourQ Time!!

Happy Tuesday to all of you. It's time for a new colour palette over at the ColourQ. I was in need of an anniversary card for my parents. Their anniversary is in June and they will be celebrating 49 years. They are such a big inspiration to me. Here is the card I made for them.

For my flowers I did some masking. I have a die for this flower but it left too much white space around the edges so I cut the one flower out with my scissors. Then on the leaves I stamped them once and then stamped them again without re-inking.
I didn't have any ink that was right for the mustard color so I used my hole punch and made paper centers instead. I attached the white piece to my card base with my dots as well as one of the flowers.  If you look close you can see that I used my PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate on the kraft cardstock.

I hope you'll join us this week. As always, be sure to stop by and see what the rest of the design team has created.

See you soon,

Deanna Jean
