A Card from Scraps with a Twist :-)


Hi Stampers!  
 
This week ColourQ celebrates their 100th post!  Congratulations to Arielle and the rest of the Design Team- you have been a true inspiration to me and so many others! 

In honor of the 100th post, they have decided to use a sketch challenge in combination with your favorite past ColourQ Challenge.  With over 100 combinations to choose from, I was having a difficult decision so I decided to use the CQC75 color combination- one that I found to be extremely challenging (plus I had not created a card for this one in the past:-)).

I also decided to create a card using all scraps or previously created parts from other card efforts.  The doily had already been heat embossed, the rolled flowers had already been made (this is the twist :-))  and the bow had already been tied and was lying in wait for the right card (see, I told you my "method of madness" would come in handy:-))

Since everything was ready to go, it was a quick and easy card.  I am not sure if I am fond of the Pumpkin Pie and Black (it reminds me too much of Halloween)- what do you think?  

Stamp Sets:   Hello, Doily, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Ink: Versamark®, Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie (cardstock and DSP), Daffodil Delight, Basic Black
Accessories:  Big Shot™,  Embossing Buddy®, Black Stampin’ Emboss® Powder, Punches- 1 3/8” Circle, 1 ¼” Circle, 1 ¾” Scallop Circle, Satin Ribbon (from my stash), Pearls  

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful week stamping and creating!
