ColourQ 58

DSCF8001

Woohoo, I actually got to do the ColourQ challenge this week!  It’s not a rip-roaring, uber-creative, knock-your-socks-off card, but I enjoyed creating it for my ex-SIL who just had some surgery.  So here’s the palette:

I had PTI’s Wreath for All Seasons set laying on my desk from another project, so I just went with it, along with the Mojo Monday sketch 64 from this week:

And here’s the card:

The recipient is not a fussy, frilly kind of gal, so I think this will appeal to her.  It uses a mixture of PTI sets, some BG and SU papers and retired SU ribbon.  Lots of sponging gives it a rustic look.  TFL!  And here’s a picture of Cassidy:
