ColourQ #83


Hello friends!  I know it has been quiet around here lately, but I'm back today with the latest ColourQ color challenge!  It's a bright and summery combo that has me daydreaming of warmer weather and lazy days on the beach.


As you can see, I went bold and bright for my card, as well.  I was additionally challenged by the fact that I only have Tangerine Tango ink, so I knew my stamping would be limited to that color.  I chose the beautiful leafy frond from WPlus9's Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions and a sentiment from PTI's Signature Series:  Butterfly.

I had the card finished, then thought it needed a little something else, so I rounded one corner.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Tangerine Tango), Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream)
Stamps:  WPlus9 (Woodgrain Silhouettes Additions), Papertrey Ink (Signature Series:  Butterfly)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Tangerine Tango)
Tools:  We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories:  Michaels (rhinestones)

The rest of the Royal Court DT has wonderful samples to share with you today, so stop by the ColourQ blog for a peek!  I hope you'll play along with us this week!

Thanks for dropping in today!  I'll be back with another card tonight, so I hope you'll come back to check it out.  Have a good one!

Beautiful! I'm always a fan of botanicals stamped in bright colors. Those rounded corners are such a great touch, too! I may have to play along with this one...

All of these bright colors could easily be overwhelming so I love your choice of a single color image with the fun layers!
