ColourQ Challenge #130

Hello!  Happy Spring!  It is such a glorious day here, almost 80 degrees.  Too bad I have been inside all day and not able to get out and enjoy it.  I needed to make my sister a birthday card and get it in the mail.  I used the ColourQ Challenge colors to make the card.  Here are the super Springy, Eastery colors:

These colors are SO great!  I thought it would be fun to make an Easter card, but I needed the birthday card more and there was not enough time for me to make two cards.  So here is what I made:

Since I needed to mail this card, I didn't use any pop dots. 

I love to know what you think, so please leave a comment!!  Thanks for looking.  Have a creative day. :)

ColourQ Challenge #128

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

First I just want to say how disappointed I am that my camera is just having issues capturing all the green in this card.  It is super frustrating.  I wish you could see it in real life!

Anyhow, here is the color pallette for this week's CQC:

And here is my card:

Why do I think I am lucky?  I have such wonderful family, friends and blog readers!! Thanks for looking at my cards and leaving such wonderful comments!! 

I found an adorable way to make shamrocks on Pinterest, and so I whipped up one that I knew I would use on my card.  I was surprised at how all these greens could come together in such a pleasing way!  The shamrock is Glorious Green.  I scored a border around the Wild Wasabi cardstock.  It's a bit hard to see, but the buttons are threaded with certainly celery and white baker's twine.

Thanks for looking!  I love to hear what you think, so please leave a comment.  Have a creative day!!
