cQc #151

 For this weeks colors, I chose to use the My Favorite Things sketch from The Sweetest Thing blog.  It's actually for a guest design team slot, but I just liked the sketch.

Because the back is done in black, it's a little hard to see that the background is embossed using the SU! houndstooth embossing folder.  I'm in love with houndstooth this season (I've got my eye and a cute pair of peep toe sling backs in houndstooth!).
I just got this stamp last month and I love that there are sentiments perfect for a teacher, or a friend.  I also love the 'oversized' accessories (the notebook paper here) from this stamp line.
This beautiful button I picked up while I was visiting my family in AZ a couple weeks ago.  Isn't it gorgeous?!  And the package contained two sizes.  I just snipped the back off, but they'd be perfect as the centers of a flower clip for your hair too.
