colourQ #153

Time for another gorgeous palette at the colourQ.  Week after week I am amazed at the colour schemes that Arielle puts together along with a fantastic inspiration photo.  Aren't these pajamas so cute?


I had been looking for a reason to use my Mega Gracious Vases dies from Papertrey Ink.  So I cut them out in all the colours and played around until I found a combination that worked for me.  I hope it is just a bad time but I seem to be needing far too many get well cards lately.  What I am hoping is that this puts a smile on to someones face really soon.


This week I translated the colours into Melon Berry, Harvest Gold, Dark Chocolate and Spring Rain.

Be sure to visit the colourQ and see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with to inspire you. We hope you come and play with us this week!

All Supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted:

Cardstock:  White, Melon Berry, Harvest Gold, Dark Chocolate, Spring Rain
Stamps: Sending You, Flippin Out
Ink:  Dark Chocolate, Melon Berry

What a great way to use those vases. And, the color scheme is just gorgeous. I don't know how Arielle does it, but her colors are always just the best combos. I like how one vase has a flower and one has a bit of twine.
