Hey there, friends! Happy Tuesday! I hope your week is off to a great start. Mother Nature played a cruel trick on us yesterday and gave us another half inch of snow. I hear some of you are dealing with more, so let's all hope that this is the last of it for a while!
I'm so excited to share this week's fun colors at the ColourQ! You may know that I'm not big on purple, but I love this week's inspiration, and I hope you'll give it a try. I also wanted to play along at CASE Study this week. Julee's sailboat card is so adorable!
I thought these colors would translate well to a little boy card. As you can see, I CASEd Julee's design, using a rectangular panel instead of a square to accommodate this cute little car from Waltzingmouse's Half Pint Heroes. I have been in need of a boy set, and this one is perfect for the little guy in my house who loves all things that go! The sentiments that come with the set are super fun, too.
I used Concord Crush patterned paper for the card base and PTI's Spring Rain Bitty Dots paper for the smaller panel. Some Hawaiian Shores dotty ribbon is cinched with a faux chartreuse button, since I didn't have any in my stash. I cut three cardstock circles using the smallest Spellbinders circle nestie and layered them to give the "button" some thickness. Then I just punched 4 holes in the middle and threaded it like a regular button. A few punched, chartreuse circles add balance to the bottom corner.
