ColourQ | Challenge #167

Happy Sunday! I can't believe it's been 5 days since my last post... December is really flying by! Evan has four more days of school before his winter vacation starts. I know he is looking forward to a few weeks off! 

This week's ColourQ Challenge was very much a challenge for me! I was unsure about the colors... but I am pleased with how my card turned out. I decided not to create a Christmas card, but instead I made a card for one of my sweet friends using Papertrey Ink's Over Under Easy and Button Up stamp sets. 


I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark and embossed it with white embossing powder on Lucky Limeade cardstock. I don't own a Sage Shadow ink pad, so I substituted Fresh Ink's Blue Sage ink pad. It's the not an exact match, but it's close enough.


I used Papertrey Ink's Heart Prints dies for the red heart. The medium heart was die cut first, then I placed the small die cut in the center, held it in place with a sticky note, and ran it through my Big Shot. I added a Making Memories button to the center with a glue dot.

I hope everyone has a great week! Only 9 more days until Christmas. :-)
