Every week I check out the color challenge at the ColourQ and every week I want to give the challenge a try. Sometimes finding the time to participate in the challenge is difficult, but I love to when I can. Today, I carved out some time to get inky with their latest challenge.
Stamping 411 sketch challenge would be a good fit for what I had in mind.
Fortunately, this method seems to work out for me (although I've made some really horrible cards in my day), but this card is one that I'm actually pleased with.
Vicky has been using one of my all-time favorite stamps sets quite a bit lately (French Foliage), so I was reminded that I missed making cards with it and it was probably lonely just hanging around in my stamp room with nothing to do. Of course, I put it to work on my card here and it's good to see it again! Now, if you're thinking that the Night of Navy button seems a little out of place you're right! This was one of those instances where I had put my card together then checked the color challenge out again to make sure I had it right. Lo and behold I had forgotten the Night of Navy! So I added the button at the last minute, but I have to say that I think it looks pretty good. It kind of messes up the sketch challenge, but not so badly (I hope) that I will be sent to the sketch challenge dungeon!
Thanks for stopping by and Happy July 4th to all my American visitors!
