ColourQ #105 and One of My Posse

Hello everyone - how is your Tuesday? 
Today I have a LO with the ColourQ #105 .
I ran across a quote on Pinterest (my newest addiction) a couple of weeks ago, and I 
instantly thought about my dear friend! I knew I had to use it on a LO about her :O)
Here is what I have come up with
I have used cardstock from Bazzill and Stampin' Up. The chipboard frame is from CI, 
the ribbons are from SU, Websters, and May Arts. Everything else is from my stash. 
To get that background texture on the black cardstock inside the chipboard frame:
1. I stamped with Cotton White StazOn ink
2. I stamped again with VersaMark and embossed with white embossing powder
3. I did not try to line anything up - it was very random. I wanted them to be off so 
that it would have that depth of texture.

Here is a look at our color palette this week 


Aren't those beautiful colors? Arielle always does such a great job with them!


I am also entering this in the challenge over at Stuck On You Sketches where the 
challenge was "Hearts". I have used a heart die cut mounted to a chipboard 
in the middle of my bow, and although they are hard to see, I have also used two
really cute little heart stick pins from Heidi Grace - they are sticking out of the top of the bow.  
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
