Colour Q Challenge # 121

Good evening!

I only went into my craft room tonight to put one of the computers away and plug it in and couldn't help but glance longingly at my desk and my goodies. :) So, I decided - what the heck? I can play for a few minutes. I kept changing my mind and rearranging, but finally decided to leave well enough alone.

Here is the Colour Q palette for this week..... (Kraft is one of my favorites and I had a new pack of Kraft cardstock from Papertrey Ink, so it was a good excuse to cut that package open!)

And my card using PaperTrey Ink Botannical Silhouette stamp set, CTMH ink colors: Tulip, Olive, and Sunflower.

The adorable little paper butterflies are from CTMH with a stamped pattern on the white solid colored side from the "Unscripted" stampset. I have wanted to do that ever since I saw it in the last Idea Book and I finally executed. The Tulip patterned paper for the mat from the "Perfect Day" paper kit (long since retired --  LOOONNNG since)  and the kraft colored hemp are both CTMH. The mini gems (both brown and pearl) are from Michaels. (I can't seem to have enough of those things -- I think they go with everything!)

Thanks for looking! Hope you have a great week. Don't forget to check out the inspiring gallery over at Colour Q this week. Pin It
