Happy Birthday ColourQ!!

Woo Hoo!  The Colour Q is one year old!!!  Happy Birthday!  And to celebrate this exciting milestone, Arielle threw us for a little loop this week.  Instead of giving us the normal, fabulous color challenge, she gave us a sketch challenge and told us to use any of the color challenges from the past year.  How great is that?!  It was so fun browsing through all the past challenges.  It was really difficult to pick one.  There are so many fantastic color combos.  I thought I would maybe choose a combo I had never used before, but that didn't happen.  I finally settled on ColourQ #13.  I just think these are perfect birthday colors for any girl.  I actually did participate in this challenge, as a regular stamper, not as a DT member.  So here is the card I created to celebrate the one year birthday of the ColourQ.

ON A PEDESTAL


It's a bummer I didn't catch all the sparkle of the rhinestones.  This card is nice and blingy.  Even the "icing" is sparkling with some Dazzling Diamonds.  You might be seeing a lot more bling on my blog in the next couple of weeks.  I'm getting ready to sell some cards and stuff at a Fall Festival at a local Christian school and the mothers there are known for their love of all things shiny.  So I figure the more the merrier!!  I should add another pack of rhinestones to my next order.  I would hate to run out!

I hope you have a chance to stop by the ColourQ and check out what the rest of the amazing design team has created.  Plus, help us celebrate our first year by uploading your creation to the challenge.  We would love to have you join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!
