PTI MIM #138 and ColourQ#213

Good evening fellow crafters! Tonight I am going to make my post as short and sweet as possible as I really need to get to sleep soon. My girls and I woke up late this morning, they were late to school and I was late to work, so I decided that we both need to get to bed earlier in order to have some more time in the mornings. Plus, tomorrow is crazy hair day at school for them and I still have no idea what I am going to do for them!

This is the first time that I am joining a ColourQ Challenge! I have been following their blog for more than a year now but have never actually attempted to join in on any of the weekly challenges! I get so much inspiration from the color combinations that are posted each week, they are always fabulous! This is also my second card for Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday #138 featuring Inlaid die-cuts. I have never joined two challenges together at once, so I thought I would give it a try and make a simple little card for both challenges.

For the ColourQ challenge, the color combo includes Peach Parfait, Basic Gray, Kiwi Kiss, Lovely Lilac, and White. I combined those colors together using Papertrey Ink's Wonderful Words: Hello and Heart-2-Heart #10 stamp sets. I used the matching dies to create my inlaid die-cutting on the front of my card. I added a couple of rhinestones to finish off the little butterflies.

I am not a huge fan of the basic gray, but I think this would of course make a nice card set with some other colors combinations. That's it for tonight, thanks so much for stopping by!
