colourQ 234

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Ready for another gorgeous palette from colourQ?  This week the colors come to you from this pretty hair comb.  The flowers on the comb inspired me to make a little spring-time floral card.

The week 3 sketch at Viva La Verve had some interesting layers which I thought would work well with these colors.  For the little circle layer I found myself wishing I had a doily die (or even some doilies) but then I started looking through my dies and found this "circle burst" one.  The light bulb went off and I cut the Coastal Cabana card stock with it just behind where the tag sits.

I don't know about you, but I was hoping that the end of March would find some signs of spring here in New England.  Not so!  Not only is it still quite chilly, there's a big snow storm headed this way for Wednesday.  As is often the case, the forecast is a bit undecided since the track of the storm could change, but some folks around here might see a foot of snow!  Yuck!  I think I'm one of the lucky ones who will only get a few inches, but any snow is too much in my book!

Don't forget to check out the lovely cards made by the colourQ design team.  Lots of inspiration there!!
