ColourQ has an amazing variety of color challenges and include a fun inspirational piece with each one. This week's colors absolutely reminded me of a girlfriend with upcoming birthday - aren't they just fresh and fun??
And then I had to play along with The Paper Players. They have a variety of challenges - sketches, colors, themes - and this week was to make a birthday card. I had really wanted to pull out a true birthday stamp - but my card, as it is, came together perfectly for my friend.
Isn't it amazing how when you already have the colors, the sketch and the theme (and throw in a special friend) - cards come together easily???
- Stamps: Stampin' Up Garden Silhouettes, Great Friend (sentiment)
- Paper: Stampin' Up Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Cottage Wall dsp
- Ink: Stampin' Up Markers in Rich Razzleberry, Orchid Opulence and Lucky Limeade
- Accessories: Stampin' Up Butterfly Embosslit and border punch, Stickles (Thistle), Cuttlebug and Quickutz embossing folders, ribbons from Hobby Lobby, gems colored with copics
Why didn't I think to use that paper for the colourQ challenge?! I only have a whole unopened pack! :) This is lovely, Kim! I love the textures, the cute embellishment, and of course the designer paper! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!ReplyDelete

You have so many fabulous details on this card...but, it still looks so clean and light. Love your layers of color! Thanks so much for playing along with the Paper Players this week!ReplyDelete
Fabulous paper choices for your card, Kim! It's funny that I feel just the opposite about combining several challenges--it stresses me out! But you have definitely done a beautiful job with all of them. Thanks for joining us again this week at the ColourQ!ReplyDelete
