Colour Q #30 and Taylor's Collage Card Sketch

Good morning! I've been looking forward to this color challenge at the Colour Q for sometime now! I just think these colors together are wonderful! What a great combination of Sage Shadow, Always Artichoke, Cameo Coral, Bravo Burgundy, and Whisper White! Here's what I came up with this week:

My card also uses the collage card sketch challenge at Taylor Expressions! This square layout was so fun to work with! I started with my card case of Always Artichoke cut to size for a 5-1/4" square card. Then I layered on Cameo Coral card stock, then Sage Shadow, and finally to the fun part of the squares! I punched out these Bravo Burgundy squares with my 1-3/8" square punch and lined them up 3 across for a total of 9 squares to make my 'grid'. Then I punched out an Always Artichoke scallop circle, a 1-3/8" Cameo Coral circle and then finally my sentiment punched out with at 1-1/4" Whisper White circle!

To decorate each square, I tried to incorporate punches, texture, embellishments and stamping! The stamped images are from the Pocket Silhouettes stamp set - and I off centered them just a little for some contrast! I hope you like this card and feel free to play along with the Colour Q this week!
