The DeLovely ColourQ.....

I was so bummed last week when I didn't get to make a card for CQC39 due to a really bad migraine and so was really determined that I would get my card done for this week's challenge, CQC40.   Another lovely combo from Queen Arielle!  Boy does she have the talent for pickin'em!  Guess that is why she is the Queen!

Anywhoo... I was a bit stumped as to how I would proceed and then it hit me...some of the patterned paper from the new Cosmo Cricket DeLovely line would be perfect for two of the colors (Melon Mambo & Barely Banana, although the yellow is a bit brighter than Barely Banana, so I actually went with PTI's Lemon Tart).   And then I saw this week's sketch from Clean & Simple and my card was born.   So nice when things come together that way, isn't it?? I used one of my favorite SU! sets:  Great Friend.  I just pretty much love everything about the set from the butterfly to the sentiments.   Today is an outstandingly beautiful day in Western Washington, so I decided to take my card outside to take the picture. 


This has nothing to do with my card just a "yay for me" kinda thing, but today I won a lovely set from JustRite Stamps called Breathe of Spring, along with an oval stamper from the swell gals at JUGs!  If you haven't given JUGs or ColourQ a try, you really should.

Thanks for taking a peek today.... your lovely comments are so appreciated!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & Lemon Tart; SU! Bermuda Bay; PP:  Cosmo Cricket DeLovely; Ink:  SU! Cameo Coral; VersaMagic Turquoise Gem; Punch EKSuccess; Stamps:  SU! Great Friend
