ColourQ 184


Happy Tuesday, everyone! It’s time for another ColourQ challenge!  Here you go:

I believe that Arielle said this purse from NM is $3000…..yikes!  I can assure you that I will not be purchasing this ever!!!  But it is cool, and although I found the colors a bit challenging, I persevered! 


I went uber-CAS with this card, as I was making it for my little 3-year-old great-nephew!  Although the Blush Blossom is not a color I would typically use on a boy’s card, I knew HE wouldn’t care, and his mom would like it.  It was hand-delivered, too, so the little bell on his collar was not a problem!  The digital image was a freebie (email me if you want to know from where!) and I paper-pieced it with a plaid scrap I had laying around.   I ran some Blush Blossom and Creamy Caramel scraps through my Chevron EF and trimmed them down for my horizontal embellishment. I didn’t have any Going Gray cardstock, so I substituted Basic Gray.  And finally, the sentiment was computer-generated.


I also used the fun sketch #205 from Unscripted Sketches for my layout:

SK174 US205

Hope you’ll come play along with us and have some fun with these trendy, fashionable colors!  Be sure to wiggle on over to the ColourQ blog to see what’s shakin’ there too!
