Colour Q plus

This weekend so far has been great; lots of cuddles/sleeps/watching movies together on the couch with my girl (Toy Story 1 and 2 have been on Playhouse Disney), a bit of housework, coffee with friends and plenty of opportunity to stamp! I have finally made a few cards that have been on my list for a while, and will be in the post Tuesday (we have the Anzac Day public holiday tomorrow).
I always have intentions to play along with Colour Q each week, but the best intentions don't always come to fruition... this week is different! And to make the most of it, this card also fits in with three other challenges: ABC Challenge - S for Sparkle, KWernerDesign - one layer and (again) Pile It On - Is Spring Finally Here? Four challenges in one project is a record for me (I've only managed it once before).
Gee, one layer cards are a challenge indeed!! I did lots of masking with this one and added a border with some scoring. Dazzling Diamonds added the sparkle in the middle of the flowers - I'll try to take a better photo in the sunlight tomorrow to catch the sparkle a bit more.
Another card I'm quite pleased with this weekend! Let's see what tomorrow will bring.
Thanks for visiting.

Stamps: Embrace Life, Cheer and Wishes
Card: Whisper White
Ink: Tangerine Tango, Bravo Burgandy, Yoyo Yellow, Green Galore
Other: Dazzling Diamonds

Such a wonderful composition and choice of colors. Like how the flowers are grouped together.

Very pretty....I know, one-layer cards can be challenging, but you did a good job with the CQC colors!

I love the scored border and the multi-colour stamping/masking... great job combining the challenges!
