ColourQ 119 and Sketchbook Saturday 45

Sunday, January 15, 2012

Today is one of those days where I think everything has gone wrong with a card.  I actually started making this last night hoping I could get it finished before the football game started, but nothing was coming together as I wanted so I abandoned it.

This morning I thought I'd start fresh with a clear head.  I had been eye-balling the color challenge at ColourQ and although I found it a little lot intimidating, I wanted to try it.  Then I saw the great Sketchbook Saturday sketch and thought I could put the two together.  That's when everything went awry!

I couldn't find my Bow-Easy so I had to tie that ribbon by hand!  Not an easy feat for the worst bow-tier in history.  So as I'm fussing over that and struggling with getting all these colors to come together in some semblance of order I check the ColouQ blog and see I've got less than two hours to finish it and get it posted.  So slapped it together, ignored the bow, and here it is.

That was hard!  But thanks to the gals at ColourQ for including Going Gray in this challenge.  I really miss that color!
