colourQ challenge #195

I'm afraid this week's colourQ challenge didn't really do much for me . . . until I found the inspiration for this card on Pinterest! When a color scheme is challenging for me, I ALWAYS overthink it and try to make an intricate, detailed card. Bad move! If the colors don't inspire you, it's much easier to choose a simpler design . . . like this one! Bella Toile is one of my favorite background stamps and, stamped using VersaMark, it gives a very subtle texture without being overly busy. You could also emboss with clear embossing powder for additional dimension. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!

These are unusual colors but I like how you chose the gray as your background...and who doesn't like butterflies? Beautiful! We're so glad you participated in the CQC this week!
