ColourQ 153

Can you believe it's September already? Today is the first day of school for K-12. My daughter is a Jr. in college this year, so she has a few more weeks before she has to hit the books again. Now that she's working on her bachelors degree, she will have to drive to the university that's about an hour drive. We were able to work her schedule so she only has to do it twice a week. Thank goodness with the price of gas these days..ouch.

 Okay, on to this weeks ColourQ challenge. Here is my card.

I stamped the leaves so they were at the edge of my cardstock. I used a ruler and my knife to cut the straight edge. Then I fussy cut around the leaves.
I attached the flower with my dots and the card front with foam tape.

This weeks colors.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope you can find the time to join us this week. Be sure to stop by the ColourQ and see what the rest of the design team has created.
