ColourQ #74

Hi Stamping Friends!!
Welcome to another addition of ColourQ Tuesday!!  Arielle wasn't too hard on us this week with her colors.  She gave us a great earthy combination.  Most times I create cards, I usually have "resale" on the brain and end up making a birthday card for Goodies Cookies, where I have my cards for sale.  But this time, I needed a card for a family in our church who just had a baby boy and I thought these colors would be perfect!

Stamps:  Animal Stories, Tiny Tags
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Early Espresso Patterns DSP
Accessories:  Square Lattice EF, Tasteful Trim die, Pear Poly Ribbon, Designer Button, Jewelry Tag Punch, Vintage Trinkets, Linen Thread

Sketch Challenge:  GET SKETCHY #76

I know what you are probably thinking... Does she ever make a card that doesn't include a color challenge and a sketch challenge?  And the answer is no.  I'm just not that creative!!  I need a starting point.  If someone tells me what colors to use, and someone else tells me the general look of the card, I'm good to go.  But just give me a bunch of supplies and tell me to create!  Aaaaccckkk!!  I turn into a puddle of stamping nonesense.  But get my ball rolling with some challenges, and I have a hard time slowing down.  If I've seen a great sketch or yummy color combo, I'm like a girl with a bad addiction.  I just need to go stamp something!!!  :)

Make sure you stop by the ColourQ this week and see what the other members of the Royal Court design team have created.  They always wow me with their stamping talent.  And I hope you can play along with us too!!

Visit again tomorrow and see my "D" digi scrap page for the ABC Scripture Challenge.  I used the Sweet Stitches digi papers from My Digital Studio.  So colorful and fun!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Stamping!

Darling!! I may have to CASE this one :)I love that Square Lattice EF in the background!
And as for using challenges, isn't that what they are there for? I don't do so well with challenges. I spend too much time picking a challenge to use!

Adorable card! And I'm with you, give me a sketch or color challenge and I'm good to go. When I attempt to start without one I can stand there for hours and not make anything worth sharing.

What a fabulous card! They layout and colors and theme just go hand in hand!
