ColourQ #126

Tuesday, February 28, 2012


Good Morning!
 The ColourQ has a new challenge for you!




I love these colors. 
They remind me of the wallpaper my parents had in our kitchen when I was a kid. Great for 1970's wallpaper, but a challenge for a card.  At least for me it was.  I played around with the colors for quite awhile and couldn't make them work for me. I think the toughest part of using a set color scheme is coming up with just the right amount of each to make it pleasing to you. 


Have a great day. 
Check out what the rest of the design team has come up with!

  5. Seriously Kara, that is so stinking cute. I love that sweet little pocket. The palette reminds me of my also of our kitchen wallpaper from the 70's when I was a girl--but it was all Holly Hobbies. Don't think I will do that for the challenge. LOL

  27. I absolutely adore this card Kara! What an inspired idea to make a white pocket for your white card! I love the way it really showcases the fabulous heart flowers and I love the heart punched out on the pocket too.
