cQc133: You're On My Mind with Mixed Blossoms

This is the card I made for the colourQ Challenge. The colors were Basic Black, Basic Grey, Whisper White, Dusty Durango and More Mustard. I substituted Cajun Craze since I didn't have Dusty Durango. I think I say this for every color challenge...but I really love color challenges.

This card turned out nothing like I had originally planned. The original card was going to use some type of spotlight technique. It's amazing how your card evolves as you put things together.
