colourQ 368!

Tuesday, November 15, 2016

I am happy to say that I am on vacation for the next couple of weeks and I am really looking forward to some rest and relaxation.  This has been a busy year for me work-wise so it's nice to sort of round out the year with some down-time.  I spent some leisurely time in my craft room Sunday and created this card for the latest challenge at colourQ.

I was in a color-block frame of mind, thanks in no small part to the Match the Sketch challenge.  I jazzed this up by adding a die cut sentiment that I cut from some glimmer paper that is called "champagne" but does not look like any champagne I'd ever drink.  It's coppery in color and I went over it with a dark brown Copic marker so as to keep to the colors of the challenge.  It looks kind of muddy here but in real life it has a lot of sparkle!

I've got lunch dates with long-lost relatives, a driver's license renewal, a new passport photo, and cleaning on my vacation schedule - what an exciting life I lead!  I even started a bit of organizing in my craft room {gasp}.  I don't know where that will lead but hopefully I can do a bit of a purge!

Thanks for stopping by and please head on over to colourQ to check out the inspiration from our design team.  I hope to see you in the gallery!

I love color-blocked cards and this one is just gorgeous. And a perfect layout for those autumn colors.
