colourQ challenge #139

Another fantastic colour pallet at colourQ this week.  Talk about whiplash.  I was so excited to use my new Papertrey Heart-2-Heart telephone stamp and die.  I had all my pieces ready, I had sketched my design and knew exactly what I wanted to do.  Then I stamped my sentiment three times on my focal point where I was going to lay the telephone over and I just stopped, I couldn`t do it.  Loved the card without the telephone.  So into my scrap bin goes the telephone for another card.

It is raining today--Yay!  We have not had much more than a few showers over the past month so we really need this.  My photos today are not taken in natural light but with my trusty Ott Lights. Have a great weekend everyone!

Cardstock: White, Spring Rain, Autumn Rose, Enchanted Evening, Fine Linen Paper Pack
Stamps: Heart-2-Heart
Ink: Spring Rain, Autumn Rose, Classic Kraft

This is wonderful. I think you made a fantastic card that could go either gender, and when I saw those colors, I did not think--man. Great job. Doesn't that 'hello' look so fun stamped in many colors?
