colourQ 143

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

Over at colourQ, the color palette seemed a bit patriotic and since Independence Day is just around the corner, I thought I'd make something with fireworks.

I ended up using the retro sketches challenge for my layout and I went a bit subtle on the fireworks in favor of making the stars be the focal point.  I think you can just see the fireworks from July Fourth are there, stamped in Poppy Parade on Poppy Parade cardstock.  One of the stars is from that same set and the others are from Seeing Stars.  

I hope you have time to join us this week at colourQ.  The design team has been busy creating some great cards to inspire you so be sure to head on over and check them out.  You have until Sunday, July 1st at noon CST to link up your project and be considered for colourQueen.  You know you want to.

Fabulous card, Jen, I love your bold design! Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I used only stamps from two sets, one retired, Classic Stars and the other from the catalog, Clockworks. I love missing up the sets and pull old ones if I still have them! Having fun is what it is all about! Hope you have a good week!
