colourQ 183

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another beautiful color challenge from colourQ!.  This week Arielle has given us another palette that I think is perfect for a spring-time card full of flowers.



I was inspired by the sketch at Create With Connie and Mary so I inked up the very pretty leaf and flower images from Secret Garden for the focal image on the sketch.  Then I thought that some baker's twine would be a fun twist to the scalloped horizontal layer.  I very nearly forgot the Daffodil Delight from the color palette but luckily I had these wee buttons in my stash and since buttons make the very best centers on flowers, I added it!  


Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to pop on over to colourQ and check out the cards from the design team.  They're pretty terrific!  

Supplies:
Stamps:  Secret Garden, Kind & Caring Thoughts (SU)
Accessories:  Daffodil Delight button (SU); Calypso Coral baker's twine (SU), crochet thread

Jen, Jen, Jen - you are the Queen of Clean - I can pick your cards from a mile off! You make combining all these colours look so easy and I love how you've used Baker's Twine for the border - love it! Thanks for joining us at Create with Connie & Mary this week!

I really like the way you layered two different stamped flowers the way you did Jen. Nice card! Thanks for playing Create with Connie & Mary!

It's funny how when a color is used that normally isn't the color of something (Soft suede for leaves)- it just seems like that is the way it has always been or should be...that's because your card is just perfect!
