colourQ 147

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

When I first sat down to make my card for this week's colourQ challenge I was a little stumped.  I couldn't figure out what I wanted to do so I started looking through my stamp sets for inspiration.  That's when I spied the adorable Birthday Bunny stamp from The Cat's Pajamas.  

I think this bunny is about the cutest thing ever and I smile every time I see it.  I mean look at those big floppy ears.  Adorable!  I think this stamp is heaven sent for this challenge because coloring that big pile of gifts is the perfect way to show off these diverse hues.  And don't you just love the HB stamp from It's Your Birthday?  It's like text message shorthand for cards!  LOL!  {text message shorthand again}

And a funny thing happened on the way to making this card.  I was looking through my personal compendium of sketches that I keep around for inspiration and found one that I thought would be perfect for this stamp set.  But as I got going putting it all together it suddenly occurred to me that with a few tweaks it would be perfect for the sketch challenge at The Paper Players.

I did change it up a bit and made my card square, but other than that I remained true to this beautiful CAS sketch.  Sometimes lots of white space is just what the doctor ordered!

We've got a new face over on the colourQ blog so hop on over and say "hi."  I'm sure she's no stranger to you!  I have long admired Tracey's style and we're all very excited to have her join us!  And this week we also say goodbye to fellow DT member Suzanne who's got some exciting things of her own on the horizon!

Now that I've said my piece, you should pop on over to colourQ and see what the design team has cooked up for you this week.  I'm pretty definitely sure that you will be awed, amazed, and inspired to join us!
