Color Q and Fresh Sketch

I've been wanting to share this card for a couple of days now, but with one thing and another, it didn't happen. The Color Q deadline is looming.  I think I can make it.


My friend Barb led our Papercrafting group last Wednesday, teaching us to make paper flowers.  These flowers are from one of techniques we used.

The colors are from ColorQ132


The sketch is from Freshly Made Sketches - a sketch by Tui Nathan


And for an extra dose of inspiration, I used this card by LilLuvsStampin at SCS.
Charlene is Queen for the Day this week.  Thanks for the inspiration Charlene!

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

FABulous, Bonnie! Love that generous helping of black cardstock. It's got such a dramatic effect (and it's easier to photograph than white, which I am having LOTS of problems with lately! Grr...)

Thanks for leaving all kinds of love at my blog today! So good to see you. :)
