cQc #72

Yeah!  I completed a challenge this week!  I love the sweater Arielle chose for the Color Queen Challenge this week.  I love the color combo for cards as well.  I liked it so much, I made two cards!

This was actually the second card I made, but I like it the most.  I used my new Dot Spot from PTI (Papertrey Ink).  I love the graduated dots that give a 3-D effect.  And these colors in the Dot Spot - perfect!  I also love the Say it with Style stamp set (also by PTI), but I rarely find just the right fit for it.  Fortunately, I was able to use it for both my cards.

I stamped my sentiment in Not Quite Navy on Baja Breeze cardstock.

Next up is the first card I made with this color combo.  Not sure why, but I just didn't like it that much.  I stamped the background with the Diamonds Background stamp in Versamark.  I also used the Monday Video tutorial from PTI a couple weeks ago, mixing and matching sentiments from several different sets.

I used Fine Linen buttons for my bit of Kraft on this card.  Enjoy your weekend!


  1. Both cards are very pretty! But I like your first one best, Robin, but I am not sure why! Really lovely though, both of them. thanks for playing the ColourQ challenge this week.

  2. I love the dots one, it just makes me happy :)

  3. I love both of your cards, especially the one with Dot Spot! Every time I see this set I am reminded that I NEED it! Such a great use of the colors on both cards. Thanks for joining us at the ColourQ!
