colourQ 304

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

Hello!  It's time for a new palette from colourQ!  This week our colors are inspired by this spectacular wreath!  You have to click that link and check that out.  I've seen some garden hoses in my life but I never saw one like that before!  Maybe next year I'll attempt to make that!  My card today isn't anything like that wreath, but here goes:

Despite how much I love that wreath I found the color combo intimidating.  When I sat down to make my card I had no idea what I wanted to do so I searched through my stash and found that leafy die.  I thought it would make a good focal image and from there I just layered on the other colors.  In the end I'm quite pleased with how this came out!  And I got some help from Sketch Saturday!

Our always fabulous colourQ design team has cooked up some fantastic cards for you this week!  So be sure you check them out!  We'd love to see you in the gallery!

I think I might be intimidated by those colours too but you have done a fabulous job. I love the pretty CAS-styling of your card and your use of the large leafy die. Thank you for joining in the fun at Sketch Saturday. Hugs, Lesley
