ColourQ CASE

**This is my second post for the day.  For my Colour Throwdown/Inkspirational post please scroll down or click here!**


Hello again!  Popping in with a card for ColourQ.  I love the soft, warm colour combo this week although I don't have any of these retired colours.  I suppose that's a good thing though because it made me search through all my other odd pieces of cardstock to find some matches and thus use up a few things!  My layout was inspired by this card by Dana F. I had fun trying to figure out what dies to use under the tag and it took a bit of playing around before I finally got to this.  

Remember Kenzie, the puppy I mentioned in this post?  Jessi asked for some pictures and I've been struggling to get some good ones.  She's either sound asleep or moving at the speed of light!  LOL!  This one will have to hold you over for now.  I'll try to get some more on Friday.  It's a tough life being a puppy...




Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (Very Vanilla) Stampin' Up, (Kraft) Papertrey Ink, (Pink, apricot) Bazzill, (Rust) DCWV

Beautiful card, Jen! I love the tag and the hearts - so CAS and elegant.

And Kenzie is just too precious! I miss those puppy days (just briefly...). :-)

Jen I love all the layers on your card. The hearts on the tag are great colours. Adorable puppy, they work so hard and then crash so hard. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week at the colourQ!
