Colour and Unscripted

I got to play along with Colour Q this week.

I usually love every single combo they come up with and this weeks was no exception. 

Now this is interesting because I think the paper and the card match the colors in the combo really well, but for some reason the photograph is a little off.  Oh well, I love the card anyway. I just picked up a paper pack by Recollections at Michaels and this particular print was the main reason I wanted it. It is an entire page of a chevron design but I just cut a portion for my card.


The two layer butterfly was cut with a Cricut cartridge.

 Now for this weeks Unscripted sketch. 
I combined some papers and stickers by Simple Stories for my card. I love collections that coordinate so well.

 Notice my two little Liquid Pearl dots, LOVE that stuff.

And, while I had out my Simple Stories papers I put together another card. I want tons of that great, brown gingham!

 It just seemed that these papers needed a distress look so I machine sewed around the one square and used my paper distresser on the edges.

I cut the flowers out of one of the prints and distressed the edges of that too.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
