colourQ Meets Seize the Sketch!

Today is an exciting day here!  A while back Lesley asked me to join the design team at Seize the Sketch and today is my first card for the challenge!  {Insert happy dance here!}  Since today is also the reveal of the new color palette at colourQ I combined the two!



The colors are inspired by this gorgeous bag and the sketch is designed by Stacey.  The colors put me in mind of Christmas so I turned to these awesome modern Christmas trees.  I used them quite a bit last season and I suspect that I'll be using them a lot this year too!

I still can't quite believe that I am a part of the team at Seize the Sketch.  I am among an extremely talented group of ladies and I am so fortunate to be joining them.  I suspect that I'll learn a lot from them as time goes by.

So be sure to check out both colourQ and Seize the Sketch because there is a lot of amazing inspiration to be found in both places!  Thanks for stopping by.

Supplies:
Stamps:  Modern Christmas (Clearly Besotted); Handy Christmas Greetings, Holiday Greetings (Amy R Stamps)
Paper:  Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Cameo Coral, Whisper White (SU)
Ink:  Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip (SU)
Accessories:  Banner Bundle Die Set (Verve); Embossing Paste (Dreamweaver); Bubble Stencil (Tim Holtz)

Pin It Now!
