colourQ 141

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

Tuesday, of course, means a new color challenge from Arielle and colourQ.  And what a challenge this is.  I think you'll find that these colors are perfect for that oh-so difficult man-card.  And what timing - especially since Father's Day is right around the corner!



Despite the tie and the man-card colors, I decided to go in a totally different direction!  The latest Deconstructed Sketch gave me a perfect layout to show off these awesome colors and I went with the fabulous PTI flower that I seem to be obsessed with!


I searched my stash, and I didn't have any more Brocade Blue so I substituted Marina Mist instead.  It's a rather poor substitution, but the best I could come up with.  Despite my liberty with the colors, I've got to say that all these blues look fabulous together.  There's light and dark and a little something in between.  And they are all perfect foil for the Lucky Limeade accents!

Be sure to stop by colourQ and check out this challenge and all the inspiration from the design team.  You won't be disappointed!  And don't forget to link up!

Fabulous flower yet again :) Love how you used the colours. Is that a PTI flower? Have seen you used it before but no mention of maker - would love to know so I can put it on my wish list LOL!

LOVE!!!!! I was hoping someone had a substitute suggestion for Brocade Blue so that I could try to play along. Marina Mist it is! I love that you used such a masculine color combination to make a gorgeous flower card.
