ColourQ #75


Hi Stamping Friends!!!
It's time for another fabulous color challenge from the ColourQ!!  Didn't Arielle just pick out the cutest bunch of colors this week?!!  And I love the inspiration photo.  If I hadn't used my Animal Stories set last week to make my ColourQ card, I would have used it this week.  Love those animal cookies!!



STAMPS:  Flight of the Butterfly, So Happy For You (SAB), Dot, Dot, Dot
PAPER:  Daffodil Delight, Cool Caribbean, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Ice Cream Parlor DSP (SAB)
ACCESSORIES:  Curly Label Punch, Daffodil Pom-pom Trim, Butterfly Punch, Basic Rhinestones, Glimmer Brads, Perfect Polka Dots EF, Scallop Ribbon Border Punch

Sketch Challenge:  CREATIVE SKETCHES #22

I was so excited about this card.  It wasn't until I uploaded it to the ColourQ site that I realized I didn't use any black!!  I could have at least stamped the sentiment in black or something!!  Last week I added a color, this week I forgot a color.  If I keep at, I may end up with the wrong colors all together!  Thankfully, Arielle is the sweetest, easiest challenge hostess I could ever work with.  She has nothing but encouragement for all of her team members.  I'm super impressed because she has actually called me at home.  More than once!!  To me, she is a stampin' super star.  And I'm glad she keeps me around, mistakes and all.  :)

I hadn't inked up this set in a looooong time.  It's so fun to dig out those old favorites that have been swept to the side when something new comes along.  I really need to make a concerted effort to use some of my older sets.  There are so many great ones to choose from!!  I had just a scrap of Cool Caribbean cardstock leftover.  I have the ink pad, but no full sheets of cardstock.  Imagine my surprise when I took out the Subtle Glimmer Brads and they matched so perfectly!!

I hope you have a chance this week to stop by the ColourQ challenge blog and see what the other amazing Royal Court team members have created.  I know they will give you lots stampin' inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope I see you again soon!!
Happy Stamping!

Pretty, pretty cute! You do have a dark (maybe black) background!

I just want to eat those cookies! And the butterflies work just as great in these colors (even without black)!
