colourQ 211

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

I had a lovely three day weekend because of Columbus Day and got all caught up for the week ahead stamping-wise.  I wish every weekend could be three days long!  Think of how productive I'd be!  The first card I made was for the new palette at colourQ!  And since the colors said Halloween to me (inspired in no small way by the table in the photo), that's the card I made.



A funny thing about this card is that I started to make it for the latest challenge at CAS(E) This Sketch.  The chat bubbles would be represented by the spider webs and the spider on my card.  Then I added the splotches and dots and grungy chevrons and totally lost sight of the sketch!  LOL!  Lucky for me, though, the challenge at Cards in Envy is to make a Halloween card so I'm at least able to enter this over there!

Not everyone over at colourQ made a Halloween card with these colors, so be sure to head on over there and check out the DT cards!  I hope you can join us in the gallery this week!  Thanks for stopping by!
