colourQ challenge #137 - Card 1

Happy Friday everyone.  Today is the kick off to the Victoria Day weekend in Canada. This is a holiday that falls on the last Monday before May25th each year and signifies the celebration of Queen Victoria's birthday.  It is also commonly know as the May 2-4 weekend, or kickoff to summer.  The 2-4 is symbolic of the case(s) of beer consumed on this weekend. The palette for this week's colourQ is just gorgeous.  I picked PTI colours Simply Chartreuse, Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria and Smoky Shadow for my colour template.






All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria, Smoky Shadow Paper Pack
Stamps: Flower Fusion #3, Trendy Trees
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Winter Wisteria, Simply Chartreuse
Dies: Flower Fusion #3
other: Winter Wisteria grosgrain ribbon, foam dots

All that work to get ready for a trip, and two gorgeous cards as well? Love how you used the gingham paper with those flower fusions. That little FF is my favorite of the entire series.
