ColourQ50 and FTL108

Going to keep things short again, today with a quick post about my card for ColourQ50.  The colors this week are three colors from the new Stampin Up! In Color line up:  Cherry Cobler, Pear Pizzaz & Peach Parfait, as well as the new Stampin Up! color Early Espresso & white.   I used the new sketch from Clean & Simple, FTL108 for the layout.  When I made the card this morning I really liked it, but now I'm not so sure.  But no going back now!

As always with SU!'s in colors line up I don't always like all the colors.  This year I'm not really wild about two of the colors:  Blushing Bride (too similar to Pink Pirouette) and Concord Crush (I'm not a huge fan of purple), but I am wild about Cherry Cobler & Pear Pizzaz.  Cherry Cobler is this rich, deep red and Pear Pizzaz is a beautiful shade of green.   I think both of them will be in my September SU! order! (ETA:  My oops!! Cherry Cobler isn't in the In Color line up!  But it is a new SU! color.)

Thanks from taking a peek... hope your weekend is going well.
