colourQ 310

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

Hello!  Today we've got some colors to show you at colourQ inspired by these cool measuring spoons.  A little color in the kitchen is a good thing!

The layout for my card is from the latest sketch at Match the Sketch - with a few liberties on the stars.  I thought the big bow was a good substitution for them!  But I've got to say that a funny thing happened when I was making this card.  At first I was going to go all old-school and dig out my scallop circle dies.  Remember those?  Then I remembered that I recently got this wreath die and decided to use that.  I got the die primarily for Christmas cards so my card morphed into a non-traditional-color Christmas card.  I do love to make those and I really love how this came out.

Ok, so how will you interpret these colors?  Join us at colourQ and show us how!  We love to see you in the gallery!  And to get your creative juices flowing our amazing colourQ design team has some beautiful cards to show you.  Hop on over there and check them out!
