colourQ 283

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

Well here it is Tuesday again!  And that means it's time for a new palette at colourQ.  This week the color combo is one of my faves because it's got Kiwi Kiss, kraft and black!  It's inspired by this tea towel.

I hemmed and hawed, and fussed and fumed for way too long over this card.  But I was having Internet issues (for the second weekend in a row) the day I was making this card so I was a bit off-kilter.  I do like how it turned out though, especially because I used an old favorite stamp set, Best Blossoms.  At one time this was a go-to set for me when I wanted a pretty flower and I had actually forgotten all about it.  Shame on me!

The layout for this comes from Match the Sketch.  I always love a sketch with good geometric layers and this layout is perfect to show off some patterned paper and the flowers.

Having Internet issues means I'm behind on everything.  I'm behind on my DT work and behind on commenting.   Apologies if you've popped by lately and I haven't returned the favor.  I plan to get caught up tonight so hopefully I'll be back to normal soon!

As always thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the cards from my teamies at colourQ.  They are beauties!
