ColourQ Challenge #102

This is the challenge this week at ColourQ:

Here's my card:

I had fun with this although I don't think it's quite as vibrant as that lovely pix of colorful bowls. I would not have thought to put these colors together so it was a challenge and fun. Card base is Certainly Celery and I used a dsp mat from the Neutrals Collection. The image is another one of those fun Joann's $1 stamps that I stamped with Black Craft ink and then clear embossed and colored with Poppy Parade, Certainly Celery and Tempting Turquoise markers. It was cut with an oval nestie and layered on a Basic Gray nestie cut scalloped oval. The ribbon is Certainly Celery grosgrain from SU and I added a brad from some Basic Grey brads that I have had laying around for years. I broke them out earlier this week and used a couple others too. Dipping into stash is always fun!

Thanks for visiting!

I like the subtlety of this---that's the beauty of challenges, you can choose which color you'd like to focus on, which makes everyone's different! Thanks for playing along with us!
