A Card from Scraps with a Twist :-)
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?
