Love You ~ cQc 39

I'm in love...with Arielle's color combination, ColourQ Challenge #39, that is! The shades of red & blue with contrasting white on this quilted pin cushion are delightful, don't you think? Check out the Pals Paper Arts #49: 4th of July Inspiration perfect for the holiday weekend! You know how much I LOVE ribbon, right? Well, the Really Reasonable Ribbon blog challenge #3 to use ribbon with a patriotic them, so I must play along!

There's only one little ooops on my card...I grabbed the Chocolate Chip Craft ink instead of the Bravo Burgundy Craft ink to do a little heat embossing. Boy, is coloring easier with embossed image lines!

Thanks for stopping by! Is everyone ready a weekend of sparkle? Plans for the Schafer family aren't confirmed yet, but fireworks are a definate!

Stamps: Dreams du Jour
Paper: Real Red, Bravo Burgundy, Night of Navy, Whisper White CS
Ink: Chocolate Chip Craft, Copics
Other: Brocade Blue Grosgrain, Clear EP, Heat Tool, Linen Thread, Sticky Strip, Sparkler Button & Pearl Flower Pins (Taylored Expressions), Lace
