I {heart} ColourQ!

I really do!  If you haven't tried ColourQ you really should.  Week after week Arielle finds amazing inspiration photos from which she pulls her color combinations.  One of my favorite things to do on Tuesday morning is click on to the ColourQ blog to see what the new combo will be and to be amazed by what Arielle and the design team have done with the colors.  I am never disappointed!   And much to my glee Arielle has picked me twice to be colourQueen!!   Thank you, Arielle!



This week's combo is gorgeous, but a little tricky for me.  I fell back on a sketch that I used last week for a card I made for the current DeNami Design challenge to help me out.  The stamps are from Memory Box (the wreath) and Hero Arts (the sentiment).  I stamped the wreath using Rich Razzleberry and added little berries using a Memento Potter's Clay marker.  The kraft card base was stamped with CHF's Climbing Vines backgrounder using VersaMark ink.  I did a bit of distressing and finished the card with some of PTI's Terracotta Tile double stitched ribbon.

Thanks for taking a peek...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Stampin Up! kraft, peach parfait, rich razzleberry; PTI vintage cream; Stamps:  Memory Box bramble wreath; Hero Arts Congrats clear set; Ink:  SU! Rich Razzleberry; Close to My Heart Autumn Terracotta; Memento Potter's Clay; PTI Terracotta Tile double stitched ribbon; Fiskars corner rounder
