colourQ challenge #343 and Make it Monday #250



Killing two birds, or challenges, with one stone, doesn't usually work for me, but today, I made it happen!! The colourQ challenge colors gave me a bit of trouble at first but I like how this turned out. I was going to add some smaller gold flowers but chose to keep my card a little simpler. I love gold embossing! I used a homemade template to mask the background, which leads me to my second challenge for PTI's Make it Monday. I used Wplus9's Freehand Florals and Neat & Tangled Scandinavian Prints for the sentiment. I finally got a mini MISTI!! I usually don't buy into the hype of new products, but the MISTI truly delivers. I have a terrible time getting evenly stamped images and the MISTI improves my stamping tremendously. I used PTI's Stampers Select White cardstock and SU! Cameo Coral cardstock. I also used PTI's True Black ink, SU! Cameo Coral ink, and Delicata's Golden Glitz ink. Thanks for stopping by and have a great Memorial Day weekend!!

I really like the boldness of this card. It catches the eye immediately, and I think that's not just the lovely flowers but the way you've let the stripes speak instead of just being a background element. You really gave them room and I think that makes this card work very, very well. Bravo!
Have a great day and week ahead :)
