ColourQ and Unscripted Sketches

This is the card I made for ColorQ Challenge 38. I really had a hard time getting my head around these colors but I am happy with the way the card turned out. I guess that is why it is called a challenge, and what motivates me.

I used Unscripted Sketches 61 for the layout of this card. I love their sketches and it seems like a long time since I had time to get to one of their challenges. They are have a special Christmas in July celebration starting July 1. They have a lot of fun thing planned.

The colors this week at ColourQ are Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss and Bordering Blue. I didn't have any Kiwi Kiss. So I googled the color and I found out it was the same as Gina K's Green Apple which I did have. The only Riding Hood Red I had was ribbon. I made the little flower by gathering the ribbon and putting it in the center of a Pumpkin Pie 5-Petal Flower, which was ran through the cuttlebug in the dotted swiss folder. I used CTMH Crandberry ink to distress the flower. It is the closest color I have to RH Red. I added buttons and little pearl to the center. The leaves are cut with a CB die. The stamp is an old SU set that I got at a yard sale. I think it is so sweet. I cut the semtimen out with Nestabilities Labels Four. The base card was embossed with CB folder called Birds and Swirls. I used a MS boarder punch to make a pretty insert.

Well this week SU comes out with their new cataloge. I think I should offer to clean houses or weed gardens to earn the extra money I am going to need. There are 16 colors I don't have and would love to have. That's just the paper. EEK!!!
What's on your wish list?

Thanks for stopping,

Oooh, this is a beautiful card Linda! Great idea to make flowers of ribbons and I love that little bird house tucked away. So glad you joined Unscripted SKetches this week!

I know how you feel about the colors...I now have more retired inks than what will be current. EEEK! I guess I know where that extra summer school money will be going. :-)
