cQc #259 ~ Sending a Hug!

Well hello there and a happy Tuesday! It's that time of week again, a new challenge is up at the ColourQ. Time to get inky and play along!


I have to admit that this card took me MUCH longer than I would have liked! I couldn't get the right balance with the colors. I had light pink centers for my sunflowers (PTI) to begin with and everything just looked dull. Once I added the deep purple everything else started o make sense! The icing on the cake was the addition of my Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins (4mm & 6mm). They truly brought this card to life!


Hop on over to the CQC blog and check out what the team has to share. I sure do love working with this talented group of ladies! Have a great day ~Lisa

Lisa, you bring colors to life! This looks amazing! I hate when something takes longer then it should. Most of the time, it's my cleaner or more "simpler looking" cards, and they weren't so simple. I really love how you used the colors, and the addition of the ribbon pieces tucked in is a fabulous touch!

Lisa this is so pretty! I have had that happen to me with cards too where something just isn't working but I must say I would never have guessed it from looking at this wonderful card! Love the sequins!! Awesome finishing touch my dear! Hope all is well!
Hugs,
Jill

I agree...those sequins are such a pretty finishing touch! I love the cluster of sunflowers too...they're just perfect! Beautiful card, Lisa!!!

Moving those colors around sure did the trick. Using ribbon for leaves is a brilliant idea.

Sue Lelli said...

What great use of the different sizes of sequins ... they really dance around and add a lot of energy to your card! Just gorgeous, Lisa!

Wow, you pulled off those colors in amazing fashion as usual!! What a darling card!

Charlene said...

I'm terrible at color challenges , I can see your dilemma, but you pulled it off and made a stunning card and I like the dark centers!!!

Jen said...

I think the dark purple on the flower centers was the right way to go because these flowers just pop! And the scattering of sequins is delightful!

Kara said...

so pretty and the sequins are perfect!

Tracey McNeely said...

Love this card Lisa, you used the colours in such a unique way!

Colleen Dietrich said...

I like how you interpreted the colors from the challenge. The deep purple flower centers worked out really well...they do rather look like a brown shade.

Jinny Newlin said...

Oooo! What a tough palette, and you've tackled it so beautifully! Perfect!
