ColourQ #94


Good morning, friends!  Are you ready for a challenge?  Check out the bold color combo we are working with for this week's ColourQ:


Yikes!  This one had me pulling my hair out, but wait until you see the amazing DT samples this week. 

For my card, it started with the Beautiful Blooms II dies and stamps, which I used to make a layered flower in Tangerine and Daffodil.  I added two Simply Chartreuse leaves and a hand trimmed tag stamped with a sentiment from PTI's Tag-its #3.  The flower is adhered to a die cut doily and popped up on foam dots over a loop of Razzleberry grosgrain ribbon.

For the card base, I embossed a white cardstock panel with a Cuttlebug folder and adhered it to a Razzleberry card base.

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight), Papertrey Ink (Simply Chartreuse, white)
Stamps:  Papertrey Ink (Beautiful Blooms II, Tag-its #3)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango), Versarmark, Studio G (yellow)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (flower & leaf dies, doily die), ProvoCraft (embossing folder)
Accessories:  Stampin' Up! (ribbon), button, DMC floss

I hope you'll play along with us this week!  I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone tackles this challenge.

Thanks for stopping by today!

This is GORGEOUS, Christina! Those bright colors are scaring me a bit, but you've put them together so eloquently! Just Stunning!

I was feeling challenged by these colors, but as usual you used them perfectly! They look so sophisticated, but mine were looking childish. You are really and inspiration.

Oh yeah, and Suzanne and I decided that next year you HAVE to try out for the PC Idol competition!

this card is beautiful, Christina. I just pinned it. That doily die adds so much to it, and that daffodil delight flower and button in front of the two layers of TT flowers - well, it all just makes me happy. Thanks also for your sweet comment on my card. As always, it made my day. Hugs.
