ColourQ Tuesday #42

Hi Stamping Friends!  Well I finally have a card for Arielle's ColourQ challenge.  I don't know how many weeks I've missed.  I've been such a slacker Design Team member this summer, I'm surprised she hasn't booted my behind right off the team!!  But she is such a sweetie, I  know even if she wanted to (beacuse I do deserve it!), she would never do that.  The ColourQ color challenge is one of the reason I became addicted to doing stamping challenges.  I love the pieces Arielle picks out each week.  She has a great sense of style.  And the colors combos are always so... challenging!  This week I combined the cQc colors with the Fall To Layout challenge over at the Clean & Simple blog.  Here's what I came up with:


This is one of the first sets I ordered out of the new catalog.  I just thought those birds and bird cages were too stinkin' cute!!  The DSP is retired, but it fit the Tangerine Tango requirement.  And since I haven't purchased any of the new DSP (yet!) I had to go with what I had.  These would be fabulous colors for the fall season.  I know I'm always apologizing for my photos lately.  I just don't know why they are so horrible!  I've tried different settings, different lighting, etc., etc., and it just doens't seem to make any difference.  So I guess I'll just have to add to each of my posts... this card is much cuter IRL.  :)

I hope you can play along at the cQc this week.  Remember to stop by and check out what the other fabulous design team members came up with.  I promise their photos won't make your eyes go fuzzy when you look at them.

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Hey Krystal, I think this is adorable! Love that layout! I have trouble photographing RED....and since the TT is a bright intense color, I'll probably share your same frustration photographing it too. I don't have any tips cuz I am a camera dunce!!! But I can tell it looks fabulous!
