ColourQ 87 and SSSC119

Friday, June 3, 2011

When I saw the ColourQ challenge this week I was stumped.  The colors are bright and fun, the sketch graphic had this adorable owl using all the colors, and there was loads of inspiration from the design team.  And yet, I had no idea how I was going to put that all together in a card!  But I was determined to give it a try, so I sat down with the Sweet Sunday Sketch and tried to put the two together.

I've taken a few day off from stamping this week because I've had some other things to do in the evenings when I'm usually stamping, and I think my mojo has decided it needed a few days off as well.  I no sooner started my card when I realized that I had no clear goal in mind and I needed to get back on course.

I'm pretty sure that this card is not what I envisioned when I originally decided to try these two challenges.  But it is bright and cheery, and I really like the flower that I used from the Simple Friendship stamp set. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!
