colourQ challenge #127


While linking into other amazing blogs I came across the colourQ Challenge #127.   I have seen the colourQ palettes mentioned in the past in a couple other blogs that I have visited, but didn't realize until today that this was open to anyone that wants to participate. These are not colors I would normally think to put all together but I was quite inspired by the Royal team's examples.  So... I just had to give it a try and this is what I came up with.   

It was refreshing to pull out my Certainly Celery cardstock.  It has gotten overlooked since my new love Lucky Limeade came along, but its such a wonderful soft, springy color to add to pink.  I did fuss a little with how to get the Chocolate Chip worked into this card - because I wanted to keep my base lighter, and it seemed a bit stark to me, until I remembered that I had these great Sweet Shop stickers, and problem solved - whoo hoo!  If you have followed any of my past posts you will notice that I really like this Sweet Shop Suite of products out of the Stampin Up! Occassions Mini catalog (available until April 30th). 

I'm glad to have the chance to participate in this challenge.  Check it out - you might just find yourself drawn to submit a card too.  Thanks for popping in to visit - hope you saw something that inspired you!
