Butterfly Kisses - ColourQ #175

Hi blogging friends! We are half way to the weekend now!! 
I am off to retreat this weekend I am ready to GO!
We leave at 8am Friday morning and will be back Sunday night. 

Today I have my design team project for ColourQ. I am a day behind,
I have been having blogger issues since I updated my browser last week. Sorry!
Now, for those of you who have followed along with me for a while, have you ever seen me put so little on a layout??? NO, you haven't! I swear I am working on my white space issues :) Because, really, the transparency is like patterned paper, so look at all the WHITE SPACE I have!!

I used my beautiful Hambly overlay for this - the entire butterfly layer is a transparency. Sigh. I miss Hambly Studios! I used my Fiskars punch for the little paper strips, the orange paper lace is K&Co. - the paper was white and I inked it to match my colors. The die cuts are Pink Paisley, the white key-hole is Melissa Frances, and I have added bling by Recollections and red twine from The Twinery. I have had that pink stripe paper for so long I do not remember who made it - sorry! The polka dot paper behind my photo is Graphic 45. I used my PITT® Artist Pen in Medium to do my journaling - I wanted something that would not smear on the transparency. 

Here is a look at this week's palette
You have until Sunday at noon to join in the fun and link up your project over on the
blog. The Royal Court has some fabulous inspiration up this week so be sure to
stop by and check it out!
