Coulour Q Challenge #85

Hello again!  I hope you are all having a great week! :)

Here are the colors for this weeks ColourQ challenge #85

When I sat down and looked at these colors, I honestly thought I would give up this week and not make a card.  I honestly didn't know how I could make a card with so many neutrals!  I didn't have Peach Parfait and no paper I had even remotely matched. 

I then dug deep into my stash to see what else I had that could match.  And I was pleasantly surprised at what I was able to find!  And it was amazing how it just all came together.  So, I am excited to present my card for this week's challenge:

 Here is the inside:

Being the end of the school year, I like to give my kids teachers a little gift and a nice card to thank them for all their hard work during the year.  So, this is the card they will be receiving.  One of my boys has 3 teachers, so I have to end up making a lot of cards. 

I am really excited how this card turned out!  I was finally able to incorporate patterned paper into a Colour Q challenge!  I also sewed with my sewing machine for this challenge. 

Supplies: Cardstock & Patterned Paper: DCWV; Ink: Stampin Up!, Stamps: Stampin Up!, Studio G; Wavy Paper Strip: Crate Paper; Chipboard: DCWV; Clip: Making Memories; Rick Rack: American Crafts; Flowers: Prima and American Crafts; Embroidery Floss: DMC; Other: thread, buttons

Thanks for looking at my card!  I look forward to your comments!  Have a wonderful day!!!
