colourQ challenge #111...

Another beautiful color combo!  I am always so inspired by the rich 'earthyness' (a new word I made up!) of colors like these.

I kept the card quite simple.  I stamped the tree and sentiment with Crumb Cake but it just didn't pop, so I very carefully stamped over the images with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder.  This deepened the color just enough to give it a bit of depth. You can see the gloss better in the real life card. 

I punched the dots from Pear Pizazz, Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry and randomly glued them on the tree.  The Pear Pizazz doesn't show up well in the photo...but it is there.

You just have to visit ColourQ and check out the A-M-A-Z-I-N-G cards that have been submitted.  Honestly, I would like to CASE them all!  Here is the link if you would like to join in this week's color challenge:

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a happy Sunday.
