Colour Q Challenge #350

Hello friends.  Playing along with the Colour Q Challenge this week, where they have an awesome palette of colors to work with!

My first thought was a baby card, but since I already have a couple on hand and don't even know anyone expecting right now, I went with a floral and came up with this:

Actually now that the card is finished, it reminds me of Spring and Easter with these colors!  I started with a Pool Party base, and added a strip of gingham (can you tell I'm loving gingham lately??!!) stamped with Pool Party ink and a SSS background gingham stamp to the bottom.  I added a row of hearts from PTI's Heart Border die, and then used PTI's Just the Pint jar stamp and Friendship Jar Flowers stamp and die set to create my card.  A jute bow, a tag from PTI's Tiny Tags, and a few sequins finished off my card.  Oh, and I also added some shimmer with my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen to some of the flowers and the heart on the tag.  :0)

You have till Monday to play along with this weeks challenge over at colourQ, so check it out and play along!

I'm also adding this card into the Double "D" Challenge, where they are asking for gingham...hope they're not tired of me yet, but they did say you can enter 3 times, and I really, REALLY do like gingham!!  :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)
