colourQ 327

I can hardly believe it's Tuesday already and time for a new color palette from colourQ.  Where does the time (and by that I mean the weekend) go?   But here we are back in the saddle and we've got some very pretty colors for you.

This is one of my favorite color combos.......for a Christmas card.  However, I wanted to try something a little different so with some help from the sketch at As You See It I put this card together.  I love the scalloped layers together, although I really wish that I had made the top blue layer much thinner.  By the time I took a good look at it and realized how it looked everything was stuck down and it was too late to fix it!

My colourQ teamies have made some beautiful cards this week so be sure to check them out.  I hope to see you in the gallery this week!
