colourQ #149

Time for another colourQ challenge.  Arielle has created another incredible colour palette along with an inspiration photo to help you get started.



For my card this week I had a need to create a sympathy card for my mom to send to the family of an old friend who passed away last week.  It is very hard for our parents when they get older and see so many of their friends pass on.  I chose PTI Enchanted Evening patterned paper as the background on my focal panel.  Pretty Peonies was used to created my layered flower.  I think that this past spring and summer this has been the set I have gone to most often.


We can't wait to see what you are going to create with this fabulous colourQ inspiration.
I hope that you will join us this week at the colourQ.  See you there!

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock: White, Spring Moss, Harvest Gold
Patterned paper:  Enchanted Evening Paper Pack
Stamps: Pretty Peonies, Sending You
Ink:  New Leaf, Harvest Gold, True Black
Dies: Pretty Peonies, Banner Borders
other: foam dots
