colourQ #161


A perfect colourQ pallete for a fall birthday.  It was so fun to use three different autumn shades on my card for this week.  Arielle is so good at picking colour combination that are just fabulous!


I started with a white panel that i stamped my sentiment on first, followed by by a circle pattern stamped in Summer Sunrise.  I die cut a doily in Orange Zest and added a flower created with Harvest Gold and Summer Sunrise then topped it with a harvest Gold button threaded with Orange baker's twine.


We hope that you come a play with us this week at the colourQ and while you are there make sure to visit the blogs of the rest of the Design Team to see their fabulous creations.

Wonderful card. I really like how you used those colors, and you brought out some older supplies I have, love, forget about, and am now inspired to grab once again.

How FUN is this? Is that doily difficult to diecut (punching out all those little pieces). It sure makes a standout embellishment!!!
