Loving colors

My post today is partly about the colors I used. 
 I wanted to use the Colour Q color combo so this card is the result. What I love about using a color challenge is it is normally a color combo I would never think to use myself.
 The dictionary Hero Arts stamp was stamped with a gray stamp pad and the frame is also a stamp by Hero Arts.  Adding the splash of blue was so out of the box for me and I love it.
 Here is the Colour Q combo.
 I also wanted to use Kimber's Saturday sketch at 2 Peas in a Bucket and using a Patriot color combo just seemed fitting. Especially since I had these Pebbles papers sitting on my desk. 
 My most recent purchase from My Favorite Things stamps is this great set of zig zag dies. LOVE how easy they are to use.
For a couple fun photos...
 We have a store in town by the name of Rocket Fizz. It is a store full of every kind of soda favor you would want and maybe NOT want and tons of candy for all over the world. My granddaughter wanted to drop in. I couldn't resist taking some pics with my Hipstamatic camera. Can you see some of those names!!!
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Sweet corn soda. Not so sure about that one, but the colors are amazing. They would be great for a card challenge.
