ColourQ #171

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

Welcome to a new ColourQ Challenge! 
Arielle has chosen some very masculine colors this week.  I know from frequenting forums that masculine cards are a challenge for a lot of people, myself included.  Now, of course, you don't have to use these colors on a masculine card.  I'm sure you could make a very pretty card with these colors.  I decided to give myself the added challenge of making a masculine card.
I used some new stamps I received recently from Mama Elephant.  I couldn't resist these two sets and two more that I'm sure you'll see me use soon.  There are links to the two sets I have used in the details at the bottom of this post.  The quality is great and speed of shipping is just wonderful!!
I also used this week's RetroSketches #45.
Have a great day!
 I hope you'll play along!

Cardstock: PTI Enchanted Evening, White, Kraft
