ColorQ's First Anniversary



This card is in celebration of ColorQ's first anniversary.  The twist is you have to use this sketch and one of the past year's color challenges to make a card.

I chose the very first ColorQ challenge as it had green and pinks, which screamed flowers to me!  I know some of you must be getting tired of these Verve flowers, but I just can't put them down!!  I'll try to branch out, I promise LOL!

I didn't have any DP that matched the colours so I used my French Script background stamp to create a pattern.  The rest of the card is pretty self explanatory.

We have another fabulous sunny day here.  The leaves are starting to turn some beautiful colours, which just makes my heart sing :)  Even the cat is friskier than normal LOL!  I'm off to enjoy a big walk in the sunshine because the rain will be coming soon enough!  Have a fabulous day :)

Gorgeous card, Marisa! I love the ColourQ combo you chose for it--such luscious colors!! I'm so jealous of your sunshine. We've had high winds, high humidity, and lots of moisture as the remnants of Tropical Storm Nicole blew through. It's feeling very tropical (but not in a good way) here.
