colourQ 218

This week at colourQ the palette has got some colors that are so popular this holiday season.  It seems like everywhere I turn I see gorgeous Christmas cards using shades of these colors.  I couldn't resist jumping on the bandwagon :)

It's been a dog's age since I played along with the Create With Connie and Mary challenge and I loved their sketch this week.  To my eye it was perfect to go along with these colors.  No flower say "Christmas" to me better than a poinsettia so I used that as the focal point on my card.  I love how clean and colorful this is!

My Fantasy Football team has made it into the playoffs!  Since this is the first time that I've played I'm pretty darn pleased with myself!  I'm facing some stiff competition coming up and I have very little hope that my team will persevere but I'll give it my best shot!

I sure hope you can join us at colourQ this week.  Be sure to head over there to check out the other cards from the always amazing design team!

So, so GORGEOUS!!! Love the clean crisp white background against the pop of color in the poinsettia and then the coordinating cool blue tone layers. Thanks for playing along with the sketch challenge this week on Create with Connie and Mary!
