colourQ #42

The card that I made for this week's colourQ challenge (#42) is very different from what I thought of when I first saw the featured colors:


Instead of my more elaborate first plan, I decided on a more clean & graphic approach!


The card base is natural white Stampin' Up cardstock. I embossed a strip of yellow cardstock that's as similar to So Saffron as I had available.

The telephone stamp is by Paper Source, and is stamped in Chocolate Chip ink. I connected the the two phones with linen thread, and cut a heart from Real Red cardstock to pop up in the middle. The patterned paper is by We R Memory Keepers. I used a strip of Real Red for a border on top of the paper.  The sentiment sticker is by SRM Stickers.

Thanks very much for looking at my card! Click HERE to play along with this week's colourQ and to see the amazing work by the Design Team and all of the awesome entries that are submitted!
