colourQ Challenge #144 - Take Two

Another fun colour pallete this week at colourQ.  The colours are very fitting for July the 4th celebrations in the US.  We just celebrated July 1st in Canada so I wanted to create a card that wasn't holiday focused.  I just received Papertrey's Lovely Layers in the mail last week and couldn't wait to give the medallion a go. Using the four colours in this weeks palette along with the same process that Dawn McVey used in last weeks Make It Monday video HERE, I created my medallion.  What I enjoyed the most about creating this embellishment was that there was so much stamping.  After creating my first card I didn't quite like the look of it, it seemed a bit busy for me.  So I recreated the card using my more CAS approach and it felt right.  The first card I created is in this post HEREI am interested to know which one you like best Take One or Take Two.  :)

Well you know I am a polka dot girl, but the first card is definitely you Tracey! They are both fabulous as always so I say enter them both!!!

They are both stunning...you are making me think I need that die set! I like this one better...although I love the polka dots on the last one, I'm a sucker for white space!!

Really sweet design, Tracey! And belated congrats on your design team gig. So cool! I'm usually away from my computer in the summer months, so unfortunately have fallen behind on everyone's blog. Can't wait to see what you do!

Wow...you did an amazing job on this card. I did not purchase the Lovely Layers set and after seeing your creations I am regretting it. Your card is so perfect and detailed, just fabulous.

this turned out so lovely, Tracey! I love it, and it doesn't look patriotic (at least American-patriotic) at all, just very pretty. :) Thanks for playing ColourQ, and for popping by my blog! I really hope you had a happy Canada Day. Hugs! :)

Another beautiful one!!! I love the scalloped square, such a great focal shape. Very hard to pick which card I like better...both are fabulous.
