Playful Painted Petals and Pennants, CQC #285 RS#159

I've been away visiting my eldest son and his family for the last three days and it has been wonderful.
My husband is back to work tomorrow, I have the rest of the week off work - lovely.

There's a cute sketch at Retro-Sketches with banners, and I haven't played with Retro Sketches for ages.

I wondered how to mix these spring-like colours from ColourQ up in a 'different' way, and pulled three stamp sets from the shelf. Playful Pennants was the first, providing the banners and sentiment. Butterfly Basics gave the Daffodil Delight pattern across the bottom and a tiny butterfly on one of the pennants.

Lastly, Painted Petals added in a few pretty flowers and foliage. Actually, I can see lots of different directions to go with this one now, but its late and I must get some sleep!


Thrilled to bits to be a Colour Courtier at ColourQ and to get a shout out at RetroSketches! Both challenges were very inspiring.

  1. Very pretty Rachel! Thanks for joining in the fun at the colourQ.

  2. What a sweet card Rachel. I love the pop of pink in the blossoms and the cute little butterfly, but then I'm a pink girl anyway, so of course I'll love it! Very pretty indeed x

  3. The stamped banners are fantastic! Thank you for sharing with us at RetroSketches!


It is lovely to receive your positive feedback. Thank you for taking the time to comment. Rachel
