Colour Q and Unscripted Sketches

 I always love the color combinations at Colour Q and I was able to find time to play along this week. 

 I stamped the Hero Arts background stamp in white and embossed it in white and then colored the background of that piece with Distress Stain.
I cut several layers of this flower design from a piece of 3 Bugs in a Rug patterned paper.
 And here is another Unscripted Sketch that I loved working with.
 I picked out a great digital paper by Design House Digital and printed it out. Punched stars seemed like a great accent for a school themed card.

 The little house is also a digital element. 
And, for a neat photo...
This is our yard this last week. I had to stand and be amazed at the gorgeous blue sky and I wanted to share the flowers that we have in bloom.  Yellow mums in the foreground and white roses. 
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
