ColourQ 36 & TESC 117


Happy Sunday! I'm just in time for my entry into this week's ColourQ challenge! Check out the super-cute doll in the inspiration photo! I've seen these little guys online before and had to convince myself that I do not need one. But believe me, if my kiddos were more interested in stuffed animals they would have to have one!

I also used the sketch for the week at Taylored Expressions. Love that label peeking out from behind the main panel!


The only color I had close to sage is a bit more green than the one in the challenge picture, but I went with it! I wanted to do a card with lots of white space-literally! I adore the look of the embossed white layers, with just little bits of color.

Cardstock: Michaels (white), Bazzill (Lily Pond), Papertrey Ink (Orange Zest)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Star Prints), Inkadinkadoo (Dot Flourishes)
Ink: Papertrey Ink (Dark Chocolate), Versamark
Tools: ProvoCraft (embossing folders), EK Success (border punch), Spellbinders (label die)
other: Jillibean Soup (journaling spot), Michaels (ribbon), Papertrey Ink (buttons), DMC floss


I used a cute journaling spot from Jillibean Soup to house a star from PTI's Star Prints and a couple of vintage yellow buttons. I stamped the sentiment on a die cut label and inked it with some Dark Chocolate to define it a bit against the white background.


And here's the inside! Super simple.

Hope you have a great day planned! Thanks for stopping by!
