colourQ 166

Are you feeling blue?  I sure hope so, because this week at colourQ Arielle has cooked up some fantastic shades of blue for you!

My first thought when I saw these colors was snowflakes.  This lead to thoughts of snowmen.  Then I saw the latest sketch at retro sketches and was inspired to go in a completely different direction.  

I stayed true to the sketch and used some simple graphic shapes in the various shades of blue for my backgkround.  I love how they let the sentiment be the real showstopper.  I left them un-embellished and sneaked in a small circle from the super-fabulous Silver Glimmer Paper for a little pizzazz.  

The colourQ design team has created quite an amazing batch of bluesy cards to show you so be sure to head on over to check them out!

Adorable! I actually thought this was Arielle's card...you have captured her "style" perfectly! Of course, you have your own wonderful style that I love, but you already know that!
