colourQ #147 & Some Exciting News

I am so excited to share some exciting news with you.  Arielle Gordon from colourQ and Retro Sketches has asked me to join the colourQ Design Team.  If you heard a scream about a week ago, sorry it was me! I entered my first card at colourQ November 2011 and I haven't missed a week since.  Now I am thrilled to be able to be a part of a team of talented ladies who inspire colourQ visitors every week!


This weeks colours go together so beautifully.  I love the blues and green, but then the pop of pink ties it all together.  I was also excited to get out my Happy Hexagon set and really get to play with the colours and designs.  I used the Hexagon Cover Plate as a template to lay out my hexagons.




All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Hibiscus Burst
Stamps: Happy Hexagons, Beautiful Butterflies
Ink:  Blueberry Sky, Spring Rain, Simply Chartreuse, Hibiscus Burst, True Black
Dies: Hexagon Cover Plate
Other:   Hibiscus Burst Bitty Dot ribbon, foam dots


I hope that you will join us this week at colourQ.  See you there!
