colourQ Patriotic Glitter Dots

As much as I love the colourQ Color Challenges, I wasn't going to play along this week as the color scheme was very patriotic and summery and I had done all of my patriotic cards for our church card ministry. 


But then I was wandering the aisles of Michaels yesterday and they had their own line of glitter dots (on sale!) - and one of the packages had the PERFECT colors for this challenge!



The Paper Players challenge that came out today was a sketch - and with the three stripes it was the perfect backdrop to this patriotic card.


  • Stamps: Studio G small clear set (in the $1 bin at Michaels but at least a year ago)
  • Ink: Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue, copics
  • Paper: Stampin' Up Brilliant Blue, Tempting Turquoise, Poppy Parade, Bashful Blue
  • Accessories: Star punch, Michaels brand Glitter Shapes, Nestabilities ovals
This is my second post for today...

Wow! This is amazing. I really like the USA ribbon.

We don't do so much in the way of patriotic cards in the UK - maybe we should!!

I know what you mean about the Patriotic color challenges. I got that way with all the Father's Day themed challenges out there as I don't shine with masculine cards. however, I'm glad you had second thoughts because this came out great!

Well now ... aren't you glad you did this colour challenge now??? I think you nailed it. Sigh ... I wish we had a Michaels here in AUS! I love those glitter dots ... and I am hoarding a pack of silver half pearls that I got from a friend. Where I live ... is limited access to craft stores! Well done, Kim! Hugs xxaxx
