ColourQ 96


Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Another fresh & fun color challenge for you from Arielle at the ColourQ:


I think sleeping under this bedding would guarantee sweet dreams, don’t you?!  I love these colors but I did struggle a bit with my card.  I needed a thank you, and was trying to do a CAS one, but that just didn’t work.  I ended up doing a pocket card.  Here it is:


Not much stamping here; the little bit I did is from Baroque Motifs, and it was really gathering dust from misuse!  Here is the insert on which I’ll write my little note:


And here is the pocket into which the insert slips:


Lots of designer paper, punches & dies! 


I hope you’ll fly on over to the ColourQ blog to see what the others have come up with today and play along with us as well.  You might just be next week’s Colour Queen!
