ColourQ #151

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend. On Sunday I took my daughter to try on wedding dresses. Wow, what an emotional day that was. I held it together for the most part. I did have a couple of moments though. This was her first time trying on dresses. We went in thinking she would just try different ones on and see what looks best on her. We were doing great until....the dress. Oh it was so beautiful and just perfect for her theme. Yep, we came home with a dress. The wedding isn't until next August, but it's so nice knowing we have the dress and we don't have to worry about it. I would love to show you what she got, but sorry, you'll have to wait :)

Okay, back to business. It's Tuesday and that means it's ColourQ time! I instantly fell in love with this week colors.

Here is my card:

I kept my card pretty basic this week. I stamped the Dot Spot images in the various colors. For the gray I used Papertrey Ink's Smokey Shadow and stamped it off first.

Here are this weeks colors:
I hope you will join us this week. Be sure the check out what the rest of the design team has created by stoppping by the ColourQ.

    I can imagine the emotions running through you while your daughter shopped for a dress....and it's only the beginning!

  3. Love this. I have been pinning lots of dot spot samples this week, as it has been on my mind. So, thank you for reading my mind. This is a super card. And, congrats on getting the perfect dress on your first day out. If you believe in omens, this is certainly a great one.
