ColourQ Challenge #141

I can't believe I haven't played along with the ColourQ gang since the end of January!! It was challenge #121 - wow!! I guess the impending move has got me freaked out that I can't stamp with all my goodies on hand and given me the motivation to stamp while I can, lol!!! Hopefully, *fingers crossed*, we won't have the same issues with getting our household goods like we did arriving here!

My card for this week's challenge:
I saw this Reverse Spotlighting technique on Debbie's blog this morning and just knew I had to try it for myself. And when I saw the ColourQ's color choices this week, everything just fell together! I love it when that happens!!

Side View
I colored the images with Stampin Up markers (Bashful Blue, Brocade Blue & Lucky Limeade), and on the spotlighted sections, I used glitter. I love how all the colors coordinate with the different products in the Stampin Up line!! This bold pattern really 'pops' off the card. I didn't like all the white areas, so I lightly sponged it with Bashful Blue. Too much white kind of freaks me out, lol! I couldn't figure out how to add ribbon without overpowering the project, so for once, there's no ribbon on one of my cards.
