Colour Q Sketch

Today I have a Colour Q Sketch!  This is the first time I have participated in one of the challenges.  I combined it, again, with the Retro Sketches challenge.  The colors I used are Pear Pizzazz, Perfect Plum, Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Whisper White. 

The Colour ! Sketch site is http://colourq.blogspot.com/ and Retro Sketches is http://retrosketches.blogspot.com/ 

Below are the sketches and my card!  I used the Happy Congratulations stamp set for the sentiment!  I might use this a a graduation card for a dear friends daughter!  LOVE THE COLORS....





This is a really clean and simple card.  I added the candy dots (from the brights collection) to kind of balance it off.  I love the stacking buttons!  I ran some Bermuda Bay 1/4" ribbon through the bottom button and glued it down and then threaded some white through the top button and glued it down....I LOVE THE LOOK!  My base is Whisper White with a Pear Pizzazz square 3 1/2" by 3 1/2".  I then added a layer of designer paper from the Regals Stack in Perfect Plum.  I used the 2 1/2" punch to punch a Whisper White circle and then cut the size down in Bermuda Bay with my Circle Framelits.  The sentiment is stamped in Tangerine Tango on a 1" strip of paper which I made into a banner with the corner of a square punch....matted it on Tangerine Tango!  I think it is pretty darn cute!


Here's to a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY!!!!
