Wishing You a Fabulous Day

Good morning!  When I saw the colourQ colour palette this week, I was intrigued…a different combination, but an oh so fabulous and different one!  These colours made me think of French country for some reason (without the yellow).  I broke out my new Waltzingmouse Stamps Chicken Wire background (this one is NOT leaving the desk area for awhile!).  Now I must confess that this card was made with a bit of a boo boo…this is the first photo of it…

Can you see the blooper?  After downloading this photo and then checking back on the colourQ site, I noticed that I forgot one colour…bashful blue! ACK!  So I had to replace that fabulous little resin flower with a sweet little baby blue button with twine.  I missed the sparkle of the first take so I added some gems to the sentiment.  I love both, how about you?  Last night as I was preparing this post, I thought that I should have distressed the edges a bit and added some stitching…my go to moves on a card…but I think I kind of like it the way it is…shabby chic with some hard edges…just like me! ACK {wink!}.  Have a lovely day…I’m taking my class to gymnastics this morning…they’ll love it!  Especially jumping into the foam pit!  Thanks for stopping by! Have a good one!

Shabby chic with hard edges? I don't think that's right :) No hard edges for you my dear friend! This is so, so fabulous! I love the cooler color tones of this palette. Stunning indeed!

I just finished a card using these colours - they were fun to work with. Great job with them and good catch with the missing colour. Hope you don't have to go digging for any swallowed socks or lost teeth in the foam pit - I've seen both LOL!
