CQC120 CHECK IT OUT!!!

Happy Tuesday again!

I'm so excited to share with you all that I'm the newest Design Team Member over at the Color Q Challenge Blog....YEAH!!! I want to thank Arielle and the team for having me!!!

If you are not familiar with the Color Q colors then hurry over the the CQC Blog to see all the entries for this weeks color combo and all the ideas the team had so far.

Here are the new colors for this weeks CQC120.....

Here is my idea....



I must admit this color combo was a tough one....but then my Design Paper Collection Gypsy Sisters from Kaisercraft came to my rescue. It pretty much has all the colors that are required in there...all I had to do is add the Bravo Burgundy. The main images are from the Flourishes Set called Country Charm Labels and the With Graditute Set. Next I embellished my card with the matching PTI Stitched Scarlet Jewel, matching Button, some White Scrapper's Floss and some Flowers.  At last I added some scoring on the bottom punched out Border and topped the scallops off with some Silver Pearls.

Before I forget.....the fabulous layout is from my sweet friend Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday Challenge #45.

Hope you like this weeks colors and give it a try! Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you again on Thursday!

                                                                      Hugs, ~Silke~
