Something from the Sea....

and ColourQ 52.  This week ColourQ is one year old!  Arielle posted her 52nd color challenge on Tuesday, September 28th and to celebrate she mixed things up a bit.  Colour52 is a pick your favorite past ColourQ combo and make your project using the sketch she provided.  And to add more fun, Arielle is giving away a $25.00 gift certificate to either PaperTrey Ink, Stampin Up!, twopeasinabucket.com or jessicasprague.com.  To be eligible you must post both your color combo & the sketch on your blog and then leave comments for the design team... easy enough!  

I found ColourQ in probably May of this year, so I hadn't done that many of the color combos.  I took a look at the past line up and chose a combo (#22) made up of Certain Celery, Night of Navy, Baja Breeze, Sahara Sand and white.  All SU! colors that I happen to own!! Yay!   I used the Hero Arts set Sea Life and their new Music Background for the card.    I just took a look at the sketch and realized that I put something on the sketch in the wrong spot!  Oh well... too late to change it! 

Thanks for taking a peek... and if you haven't tried ColourQ, you really should!

Oh what a pretty seahorse! Everytime I see one of those I think of the ads they used to have in comic books when I was a kid to get little colonies of them to grow at home, LOL!. I'm sure this one is prettier than those would have been :-)
