colourQ 214

It's Tuesday and that means it's time for a new palette from colourQ!  This week the colours are inspired by these napkins.  For my card I didn't use a single stamp and instead decided to play with my sunflower die.

This week at Less is More the challenge happens to be a Dark Background With a Splash of Color so I thought these colors would be a good fit for that if I used Early Espresso as my card base.  Then I spied the sketch at CAS on Sunday and figured my sunflower die long with this thanks die would fit that too!  I love it when all these challenge worlds collide!

Before I go I'll confess that I had this card all put together before I realized that I forgot the white!  Never one to panic, I reached for some white sequins and added a few near the sentiment!  Sequins are awesome!

The colourQ design team have some great cards to inspire you so be sure to check them out.  I hope you can join us in the gallery this week!

Paper:  Early Espresso So Saffron, Dusty Durango, Bashful Blue
Accessories:  Sunflower die (My Favorite Things), Thanks Word die (Paper Smooches), Winter Blend sequins (Avery Elle)

Many apologies for my extremely late visit.
I was at a craft show on Friday and singing in a choral concert on Saturday!
This is simply classic, I love the pop of colour!
Thanks so much
