ColourQ 97...

Hey there... after spending the last day or so coloring up a storm with my Copic markers I decided to make something that required absolutely no coloring.  Made this little card using the current color combo from ColourQ.  Hadn't done a ColourQ challenge in ages because of one thing or another (lack of time, lack of talent, etc..) so was determined to make something using this week's colors.  The color choices are bold and bright with a bit of softness thrown in for good measure. 



On Wednesday my most recent PTI purchases finally showed up on my doorstep (yay!) and one of those purchases was the newly release set Half & Half.  Thought it would be fun to use that set for my card.  I die cut the strip of Tangerine Tango polka dot paper with one of the dies that match the set and then cut a piece of white cardstock to fit inside.  I stamped one of the little flourish bits included in the set on the bottom using Melon Mambo ink and the sentiment using black.  A piece of Melon Mambo cardstock was run through my Big Shot inside the SU! Elegant Lines embossing folder.  After putting everything together I finished off the card with a few black rhinestones and some Spring Rain buttons. 

Thanks for taking a peek....
