{ColourQ 85} May Your Day be Blessed With Happy!

Hello Peeps!   I'm patiently waiting for the SUN to SHINE on my weekend, but in the meantime I decided to play along with Arielle Gordon's "challenging" Colour Q #85 Challenge!

These are colors I would never put together on my own, but they really do work.  Be sure to visit Arielle's blog and look at all the beautiful samples her Design Team has created to inspire us.  As always, I am simply *amazed*!

My card is a 5-1/4" square of sahara sand, folded at the top.  I've layered on basic gray cardstock and zig zag stitched on a coordinating plaid print from Basic Grey {Sweet Threads 6 x 6 Paper Pad.}  The scalloped edge is peach parfait cardstock and the sentiment is printed on naturals white.

The sentiments on the front and inside are digital images from Paper Fashions, Etc.  Aren't they great?  I simply printed directly onto the cardstock.  They are so convenient, and best of all, you can resize them to whatever you need. 

I just happened to have these big Bazzill Basics paper flowers in my stash and they were the perfect peach parfait color!  I've embellished with a chocolate chip corduroy button and more of the ultra purpose brown and white baker's twine.  Love this stuff!!  {If you need any, I'm selling it in my ETSY Shop!}

Well, I do believe the SUN has come out and that means that I need to get outside and do some yardwork today.   Thanks so much for blogging by . . . and like the sentiment on my card says . . .

May your day be BLESSED with Happy
All day long!

I Love this Pam! I love the colors and I especially love the saying on the inside. It's so uplifting! And I love your quote for the day! I'm waiting or the sun to shine today as well. It's rained non stop this week. I love rain, but I'm ready for some sunshine! It's trying to shine through today.
Happy Card Making!

Great card!! Love the big flower on the front :) We have had sun, clouds, sprinkles, wind, fog (this morning) all of it today! Thankfully, nothing bad tho.

Have a great rest of the weekend!
