ColourQ 51...

and another challenging set of colors for CQC51, but when I initially saw them I thought to myself:  "how pretty, I'm sure I can come up with something, no problem"...  Well, I did have a problem.   I made a card last night that after I finished it I just didn't like how it turned out.  And upon reflection I concluded that it was because I used way too much of the Poppy Parade color and way too much white.  I spent most of today rethinking how I would combine the colors and I think I came up with a more pleasing combination.  I kpet Poppy Parade to a minimum, as well as the white.

I used the current CPS sketch 185 to help me along.  And I think I still have enough time to post the card on the CPS blog.   

Thanks for taking a peek.... hope your weekend is going well!

Supplies: Cardstock:  SU! Old Olive, So Saffron & Poppy Parade; PTI white; PP:  SU! Peach Parfait; Ink:  SU! Old Olive & So Saffron; Stamps:  Hero Arts Little Butterfly cling & SU! Whimsical Words
