ColourQ 80

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

The big brown truck arrived at my house today and dropped off a box full of SU! goodies!!  To celebrate, I broke out one of my new stamps sets and got to work on the ColourQ challenge.

I have a love/hate relationship with color challenges that include Kiwi Kiss.  I love them because Kiwi Kiss is (in my opinion) one of the best greens Stampin' Up! ever came out with.  I hate them, because I'm down to one full sheet plus some scraps for the sum total of my Kiwi Kiss cardstock supply and I hate to part with it!  But I'm a slave to these color challenges so I used a small scrap for my card.

One of the stamp sets I got today is the Fabulous Florets set in the new Summer Mini.  I knew the minute I saw it that I had to have it.  The combination of solid flowers and outlined flowers is very versatile and I think I'll be reaching for this set quite a bit.  For this card I went with a Tangerine Tango flower and as expected it looks very pretty!  The layout I chose for this card is one from "the binder."  It's from the Taylored Expressions sketchbook, which used to be a Friday sketch challenge, but I think is now defunct.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Gorgeous! I wish I could such potential in this set--it did not appeal to me at all. But now that I see your creation, I think I might change my mind!
