colourQ challenge #135 & RS #10

Down to the wire with my colourQ submission for this week.  I love the better weather, the sunshine, the warmth but sadly along with that is the humidity which means I am entering migraine season.  :(  Today I woke up with a clear head after three days lost and finished my card.  This weeks RetroSketch was exactly what I needed to pull my ideas together.  The Harvest Gold panel was stamped, impressed with the Woodgrain Impression Plate and popped with foam dots.  I wrapped Aqua Mist Ribbon around  the the panel and the base.  I topped it off with a cute notched flower that I created with Aqua Mist, Pure Poppy and Harvest Gold felt to pull the colours together.  The button was die cut with Dark Chocolate cardstock.  Hope you enjoy.

Cardstock: White, Harvest Gold, Dark Chocolate, Dark Chocolate Gingham (Pattern Pack)
Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies

Oh, very nice Tracey! You have really brought together the sketch and the colors perfectly--I love those vibrant flowers, and the textures and patterns all go together so well. So sorry you have been under the weather--take care of yourself!

Okay...wow! Love the texture and the use of the patterned paper. The flower in place of the bow is a great touch. So glad you joined us again this week at the ColourQ.

So glad you are feeling better and that you were able to finish your card. I love how you used the Woodgrain IP and the felt notched flowers with the die cut button!!! Such a beautiful card! Hugs!

Fabulous card, Tracey, I love those felt flowers and the embossing adds so much! Thanks for joining us this week at the ColourQ and sharing your card.

Another note, hope you are feeling better soon. Are your headaches from allergies or just pressure ones. Goggle for the list of foods that can cause migraines. I suffer from allergies and pressure migraines, so I watch foods I eat!
