I didn't think I was going to get anything made for this week's colourQ challenge, so this post is a bit of a miracle. :) I worked on ideas for hours yesterday and couldn't get them in the right combination to look right. I LOVE anything with a retro feel, so I was very disappointed in myself. I failed miserably at the challenge AND the new recipe I tried turned out horrible and had to be thrown out.
This morning I woke up determined to have a better day and headed off to my room to make something for the challenge...successfully this time! I put aside everything I had tried yesterday and started fresh. I grabbed a stamp set I hadn't used yet and started putting together different ideas until I finally felt like I had something I could actually post! (I also made pumpkin bread today to make up for yesterday's recipe disaster. I hope my club ladies will like it tonight.)
Now of course I made something that was difficult to photograph! :) I finally used the Best Friends Forever stamp set that we received at Convention back in July. It is not once that I would have normally purchases, but since I had it, I thought I'd try inking it up. I also had to add some Fun Flowers from my favorite die. I hope you enjoyed my card and will give the colors a chance to work for you!
