My Help... (CQC127/PP85/SFYTT)


Hello hello! Time for another (fabulously gorgeous!!) palette at the colourQ today! Here's the pretty palette:
cqc127
I am also including this for Paper Players 85, "Spring has Sprung" challenge:
I also used this month's sketch for you to try, here is the sketch:

I just couldn't get past doing a very traditional, flowery card with this... I really wanted to get more creative (Kasia did, I LOVE her card this week, it is so fun!) but.... girly/feminine/Springy/traditional is where I ended up, which is really ok since I haven't made such a flowery card in awhile. I also started out with the intent of making a birthday card, but I couldn't resist using this beautiful Verve stamp... this is such a lovely verse... I have been reading my Bible a lot more as of late, and I have had so much peace in my heart, such a good feeling! So, I don't know who will end up with this... I did end up making a paper flower for this that didn't end up getting used, so maybe I'll still get around to making a birthday card this week with this palette! Here's another view..

The flower stamps are PTI that I won from Lynn's blog. I layered the Bible verse stamp on top of that. The green die-cut paper, is not really as yellow as the photos show... it is a little more yellowy that Certainly Celery, but it does appear a lot more yellow in these pics, I tried to adjust the color in iPhoto, but was unable to get it looking more green, and get everything else to stay it's actual color!
As I mentioned, I made a flower, for where the cross is, but it was too big, and sort of too riotous/happy/wild for the card. But I really like how the die cut cross turned out. This could be a pretty Easter card, or even a sympathy card, I guess.

Well, I am so happy you stopped by! I really hope you will be able to come play with us at ColourQ this week! Would love to have you join us!! :)

Beautiful card, Noelle, love your flowery version! Hope you are having good weather, but after all it is March in the Rockies, so any snow this week? Have a wonderful Tuesday!

This is lovely! I agree that Kasia's card was cute, but this is just as springy & fresh!! Great sketch and of course, I am thrilled you submitted it to the Paper Players as well!

Noelle, fabulous card. Love how you used the flowers as the background and then over-stamped the sentiment. So glad you joined the Paper Players this week

What a pretty spring card, Noelle! I haven't used these flowers stamps in ages, but they look wonderful stamped behind the sentiment. Love how you added the woodgrain texture, too!
