ColourQ 127 and Viva La Verve

I tried to use the ColourQ #127 combo, but I think my computer printed out a mutant version of the colors – it’s entirely possible, since my computer has been giving me such grief, for months.  My ‘coral’ doesn’t look so very coral when placed next to the challenge photo on a computer screen.

At any rate, I also gave the Viva La Verve March Week 2 sketch a go, the result being this card:

I grabbed some K&Company designer papers and a quickie embossing folder for this one.  I also pulled out my favorite Great Friend stamp set, for the flower and sentiment.

Thanks for stopping by today. ;-)  Hope you have a great weekend!
