Colour Q – Challenge # 200 and Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge – Anything Goes!


Today I have a card made for Colour Q Challenge # 200. Such a pretty colour combo. Got to love the peacock too!! I would also like to submit this card to the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge for this week Anything Goes! I used one of my favourite stamp and die combos from Paper Smooches – Streamers and a sentiment from one of my all time favourite sentiment stamp sets…Sentiment Sampler!

Here is the Inspiration for the Challenge From the Colour Q blog……..


Here is my take!


I haven’t been making too many cards with flowers lately as there was a time when I couldn’t resist putting them on everything! But the time has come again and I used the PTI lovely layers die to make a styalised flower.

Supplies: Card – Bazzill Marshmallow, SU So Saffron, Old Olive, Marina Mist and Midnight Muse. Patterened Paper – Pebbles Family Ties 6×6 pad. Ink – SU Midnight Muse. Stamps – Paper Smooches Streamers, Sentiment Sampler. Dies – Spellbinders Large Circles, PTI Lovely Layers, Paper Smooches Streamers. Button – SU Old Olive.

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Such a fun card! I love that stylized flower! Great use of the colors. Thanks for joining us at ColourQ!

  2. Hi again, Kathryn: hurry, hurry – add your card to this week’s Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge: Anything Goes! This card ROCKS! Beautiful colours, fantastic layout and you’ve showcased PS products wonderfully! Go. Now. Quickly!!
    I read your ‘about me’ info: delightful! I’m a new-comer to card-making (obsessed, completely) and to sharing my projects via a blog. So much to learn…and participating in challenges is a most excellent way to ‘stretch the creativity,’ as are online card classes. Looks like we were classmates in the recent Summer Camp! Like you, I live in a town where a card-making community doesn’t exist – Canmore,Alberta, Canada. It’s a pretty town, filled with athletes (my husband included…) and since I’m not particularly sports-oriented (I like power-walking…), my ‘activity of choice’ is playing with the cards. Great to have *found* you in this community! Enough from me: off you go to add your card to PS…

      Thanks for your suggestion c! Have just entered for the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge. I have still to get my head around combining challenges. I have seen many people combining several challenges in one card! I’ll have to work up to that….lucky it happened by accident this time.Thanks for the encouragement and I will be looking out for you in future challenges! x

  3. Just gorgeous! LOVE the colors and layout! BEAUTIFUL! So glad you played along with us this week at Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge!!!
