CQC85 Heartfelt Thanks

Hi Stampers!  

Wow, another week has passed by already!  I wanted to create a card for this week’s CQC85 ColourQ Challenge (see   The  inspiration photo  would have been “purr-fect” for the retired set Cool Cat from SU! but I decided to use the new set Strength and Hope.   I may still create the Cool Cat card at a later date…:-)

To create this card:
Using Chocolate Chip ink, stamp the background stamp En Francais onto a piece of Sahara Sand and Peach Parfait DSP.  Ink the smooth side of the Finial Press EF with Chocolate Chip ink and emboss both pieces. 

Mount these layers onto Whisper White, Basic Gray and Chocolate Chip. 
Color the scroll image from Strength and Hope with a Basic Gray and Peach Parfait SU! Marker and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Stamp the butterfly image in Basic Gray over the scroll images and stamp the butterfly again in Basic Gray onto Peach Parfait cardstock.  Cut out the butterfly from the Peach Parfait and adhere on top of the Basic Gray butterfly (to allow the antennae to show from the lower image).  Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and adhere to a Chocolate Chip layer.  

I used scraps of Chocolate Chip and Basic Gray that were previously embossed with the Square Lattice EF.  The Basic Gray piece was punched using the Decorative Label XL Punch and cut in half.  

Stamp the sentiment on Whisper White using the Peach Parfait and Basic Gray markers and punch out with the Designer Label Large Punch.  Layer onto Peach Parfait and Chocolate Chip (also punched with the Designer Label Large Punch and cut in half to layer behind the sentiment). 

Finish off with pearls and spray with Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint (mixed with 70% alcohol).

Stamp Sets:   Strength and Hope, Hodgepodge Happiness, En Francais
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, Basic Gray, SU! Markers- Basic Gray and Peach Parfait
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Gray, Chocolate Chip, Peach Parfait, Sahara Sand DSP
Accessories:  Big Shot, Square Lattice and Finial Press EF, Brayer, Decorative Label XL Punch, Designer Label Large Punch, Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint, Distressing Tool, Pearls
Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a wonderful Sunday!
