ColourQ Challenge #117


This week the ColourQ challenge was to use black, white and ONE other colour.  I had a lot of ideas rolling around in my head but when I got up this morning I knew my other colour was going to be gold.  I took a picture of a party hat that was purchased for a New Years Eve party last night, but when I went to take pictures after I made the card I noticed the card was not in the camera!  Boo Hoo.  My inspiration was this awesome black and gold hat that had boa along the bottom and on the top.  I die cut my numbers from the hat and cut off the top to make a mini party hat.  Put together rather quickly, but lots of fun.

Happy New Year everyone,  I hope that 2012 is a fabulous year for you all full of good times and good health.




Cardstock: White, black (PTI)
Dies: By the Numbers (PTI), Quatrefoil
Other:  party hat, foam dots
