ColourQ - Challenge #118

This week's challenge was the first challenge of 2012.  Wow, where does time go.  The pallette makes me wish for springtime.  It is a beautiful sunny day today but it is very, very chilly.  The inspiration for this week was a gorgeous purse from Fossil.  A girls can't have too many purses and this one is gorgeous!  Here is the ColourQ palette and my submission.







All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Aqua Mist, Berry Sorbet
Stamps:  Background Basics: Circles, Flower Fusion #4
Ink: Spring Moss, Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Dies: Bloom Builders #3

Just gorgeous in its simplicity, Tracey! The flower looks like it was made for that doily, and I love the way you grounded it with the circle border. Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ!

Wow, Tracey--great CAS card! I have that flower die and love it. Yours looks so full, I'm thinking you must have double-punched everything--did you? Also love your MIM card and matching gift card holder; great job!

WOW, I love this - so sleek and CAS, but with that POP of a focal point, the flower and the doily! I need to make cards like this. I have a tendency to feel like I must "fill up" the canvas, but I see a card like this and LOVE it!
