colourQ 171

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

This week at colourQ, Arielle has got some great colors that are perfect for the oh-so-difficult man card.  I'm pretty much the worst man-card maker out there, so even though I started out making a card with those intentions, I failed miserably.  I did, however, use the sketch from clean&simple and even managed to throw in the Thank You challenge at CAS-ual Fridays so on some level I redeemed myself!

I used Seeing Stars to stamp some random stars on the Night of Navy layer then stamped a big one in Daffodil Delight.  I added the flourish behind it, which I think always looks nice paired with a star - kind of like fireworks!  The "thank you" sentiment is from Happy Moments.

There's lots of inspiration over at colourQ, so be sure to head on over there and check out the DT cards.  Then come along and join us!

The swirl and star are brilliant together Jen. I've just made a card for this challenge and it's in the bin!

I don't think you've failed AT ALL, Jen! I mean, I put bows on my man cards ;). Such a fantastic color combo, and I just love that star flourish! It gives the whole creation such fabulous movement.
