Colour Q #217

Hello -- I hope you are having a wonderful Holiday season thus far! I managed to have a little shopping time with my sister today - the most fun and a real rarity seeing as we live three hours apart and have 5 children ages 9 and under between the two of us. I won't bore you with the details of how it worked out but suffice it to say, it was a good day! :)

Last night, even knowing I needed to go to sleep, I snuck off to my crafty space to make a card using the Colour Q colors. Hee hee. I wanted to monkey around with my PTI Round Repeats stamp set.

I played around with a few variations before I ended with this one. I'm not in love with it, but it was the best version and I like how it has a somewhat "folksy" feel to it. Different for me, so that was the fun part.

I used PTI's Simply Chartreuse along with CTMH Cocoa, Sunset, and Crystal Blue. The sentiment is stamped from CTMH's Card Chatter - Birthday. I matted the panel in a matching orange cardstock (scraps of another company) and used a Bazzill green for the card base. It all came together well and I was pleased with how my colors worked out. (Love to use up scraps!)
Thanks for stopping by to visit!
