cQc # 357 ~ You're So Special!

Hey there! I can't believe this is the last Tuesday of August. Summer is fading away before our very eyes. So how about a sweet little flower to brighten your day. We have a new happy palette for ColourQ this week. I'm not a fan of bright pink and orange isn't high on my list. But you know, I like they way they look together on my card today!


Colors check, polka dots (oh yeah!) check, sweet playfulness like the quilt and sham in the inspiration photo...yep another check! I've used Pretty Pink Posh's Scallop Border Dies and Precious Remembrance Shop's Blossom Stamp Set for the water colored flower and sentiment. I couldn't use green for the leaves, so I opted for some sparkly white glitter instead!



Have yourself a delightful day. ~Lisa

I would never guess that you don't like these colors because you are a whiz at pairing them together! I love the polka dots and the little scalloped detail!

Greta said...

Gotta say--orange is toward the bottom of my list of colors I like, but paired with pink is one of my most favorite color combos--go figure! Anyway, I adore your card--wonderful flower image perfectly colored & I LOVE the scalloped borders! You always come up with the best ideas, Lisa!

I totally agree - bright pink and orange are not my favorites, but your use of black keeps it grounded. I love the blending on the flower.
