ColourQ #41 & Taylored Expressions #121


Hi there! Just a quick post today to meet the deadline for the color challenge at colourQ. I also used the sketch at Taylored Expressions.



I combined several stamp sets for this card, and I'm not sure what I think about the results. I'm definitely still struggling to find my groove while I'm away from home. But this is a really lovely color combo that I will have to try again in the future!


Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Raspberry Fizz, Smokey Shadow, Sweet Blush, white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Beautiful Blooms II, Turning a New Leaf), WPlus9 (Mehndi Medallions), Stampendous (Music Score)
Ink: Versamark, Jo-Ann (white), Clearsnap (Black)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (flower dies), Spellbinders (circle dies), EK Success (border punch)
Accessories: Papertrey Ink (buttons), Michaels (rhinestones), DMC floss

Sorry for the short post, but we're visiting with family today. Thanks for stopping by today!
