Happy Birthday ColourQ!

Hi Stampers! 

This week ColourQ is celebrating their very 1st Birthday- Congratulations ColourQ! 

They have been providing 52 weeks of great color inspiration and this week they have decided to combine a sketch challenge with your choice of a previous week’s ColourQ combination from their first year (see ( for more details).
I needed to make two cards for my twin nieces who just turned 15 this week, so what better way to celebrate than to use the sketch/color combination from the ColourQ's birthday week:-) 

I love their color combinations and chose CQC26 since lime green and purple are the favorite colors of both of my nieces.  Of course, they are also “horse crazy” so I used a SU! retired favorite set of mine- Bareback for the focal image.  I changed the colors on each one to try to make them a bit different:-)

A bit of sponging, the Big Shot with a few SU! embossing folders, pearls and ribbon were all it took to make both cards in a jiffy!

Stamp Sets:  Bareback (retired), Short & Sweet
Cardstock:  Certainly Celery, Lovely Lilac, Lavender Lace, Bermuda Bay and Whisper White
Ink: Lovely Lilac and Bermuda Bay

Accessories: Big Shot, Finial Press, Square Lattice and Vintage Wallpaper EF, Word Window and Modern Label Punches, Pearls and 5/8” White Satin Ribbon

Thanks again for visiting and all of your encouragement:-)  I hope you enjoy the weekend- we are expecting lovely weather tomorrow- God Bless!

Lovely unusual color combo for a horse, but it works! I can't believe it but it does! Very pretty. Your Christmas cards were stunning too!
