As promised I'm back with a new project...and this one is for this weeks Color Q ~ CQC169.

My inspiration for this card came from the Deconstructed Sketch #82....and the awesome Tuesday Trigger ~ Sweet Dreams....I tried to in-cooperated all the colors from the inspiration photo, but went a little easier on the blue color :) .


Have a fabulous weekend and thank you so much for taking the time to stop by...I will be back on Monday with a new card! See you then,
