colourQ #180 & 450 posts almost here!



Happy Tuesday!  Time for this week's colourQ palette!  Lots of green this week, thinking spring and St. Patrick's Day and grass something we haven't seen much of this winter.  I hope you are seeing signs of spring where you are.  We were hovering above freezing today and it is raining, the snow is disappearing--a good sign.



I finally inked up Framed Out #12 and used a S. Patrick's Day sentiment from Tag Its for my card.  The stripes were made with Background Basics: Stripes.




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.

I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Stamps A Bit O'Green challenge.  I am hitting my 450th post this week and to celebrate I am offering up a special treat to one of my randomly selected followers.  Please don't follow me just for the 'treat' but because you enjoy visiting my blog and find it as a source of inspiration.

All supplies are from Papertrey Ink unless otherwise noted.
Cardstock:  White, New Leaf
Stamps: Background Basics: Super Stripes, Framed Out #12, Tag Its #1
Ink:  New Leaf, Simply Chartreuse, Smokey Shadow, True Black

I was really examining your card Tracey and realized how really good you are at color combinations. The layering of the colors seems simple to do, but you placed the black strip perfectly to break up the other greens. Such a well done card. Congrats on the 450 posts! I always expect something cute when I look at your blog!

Congrats on your 450th post, so exciting! You are always an amazing source of inspiration to me and this card is another one, so pretty and very festive for the upcoming holiday. I love that little frame it's, another stamp that I have not inked up. This is just perfect!

This is so cute. I think those greens are difficult to use together, but you totally nailed it. And, I can't believe I forgot about that awesome framed out die--I love how you found just the perfect sentiment for that little space.

I'm smitten with stripes lately, so this jumped right out at me. Love the mix of greens (I find greens so challenging!) and that tiny Polaroid frame.
