colourQ 315

Tuesday, November 3, 2015

Hello, hello!  It's time for another challenge from colourQ!  The colors this week are bold and (eventually) made me think of fall!  They are inspired by this napkin.

The colors had me a bit stymied at first.  Then I decided to just start layering them and see how they all looked together.  I followed the sketch from As You See It (with the leaves taking the place of the round doily shape) and added an autumn themed sentiment so that I could play along with Can You Case It too.  In the end, I am pretty pleased at how this turned out!

My fellow colourQ teamies have got some gorgeous cards to show you this week, so be sure to stop on by check them out.  I hope that we'll see you in the gallery!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is so pretty, and it is hard to believe that you were stumped at first. Love your card, and especially how you used a blue card base. That is so striking.
