Colour Q #172, Retro Sketches #46

Yay, another post!! I am REALLY trying to get into a routine, so that I can make time for challenges.  I do enjoy it so much, and it gives me the kick in the butt that I need to actually use my supplies :)

This week's colors from ColourQ:

Plus the current sketch from Retro Sketches:

Equals this card from me:

I was super excited to use a couple of stamps that I love, yet hardly ever use.  The flourishes are probably one of my favorite sets, except I have a hard time incorporating them into projects.  I was glad that I thought of this set right away when I saw the color inspiration photo.

I don't have most of the specific colors from the color challenge.  So, I used More Mustard, Pink Passion, and for the Poppy Parade ink (I had a small piece of cardstock) ....I stamped on Tangerine Tango first, and then tapped it onto Real Red.  I think the color came out pretty close.

Supply List (all supplies are Stampin' Up!):
cardstock - Basic Grey, More Mustard, Poppy Parade, Whisper White
ink - Pink Passion, More Mustard, Basic Grey, Real Red, Tangerine Tango
stamps - Triple Treat Flower, Finest Flourishes
embossing folders - Perfect Polka Dot, Square Lattice
other - rhinestones, rub on

Thanks for looking!

Pin It!
