this world

Hello friends!!  First day of school for my boys and it was a bit of "touch & go" this morning getting the older one out the door and to the bus stop on time.  We got up a little late and he only had 10 minutes to get ready!!  But he made it... YAY!  Things went much smoother getting the little one to school.. thankfully!!  Anywhoo... have a card that I made using the current ColourQ combo and the layout from Retro Sketches.   Since I used Reverse Confetti I'm linking this up to their Fetti Finds link list.


I stamped the feather from the RC set Peacock Pretties using Memento Rhubarb Stalk and SU! Regal Rose inks and then trimmed them out.  Still hoping that at some future date RC will start offering dies because that feather is killer to trim out!  A second image from Peacock Pretties was stamped on a strip of white cardstock using London Fog ink, the centers colored with Memento markers (Rhubarb Stalk & Lady Bug) and then the sentiment from Peacock Pretties was stamped using Tuxedo Black ink.  The edges of all the papers were distressed a bit before I layered them up on the card. 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; SU! Island Indigo; PP:  Stampin Up!; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Inks:  Stampin Up! Regal Rose; Memento Tuxedo Black, London Fog and Rhubarb Stalk; Memento markers Rhubarb Stalk & Lady Bug
