Colour Q #250 (where have I been?) a word and Thanks

Happy Monday!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful week-end!  I returned from a mini vacation in Newport RI and feel rested and full of energy!  It must have been the chowders and lobsters ;)

I have seen a few amazing cards created for the this Colour Q challenge on some of the blogs that I follow and I was inspired to create one too!  This is my first time playing along...where have I been?
My card was a quick one to put together.  I used this scrap of a Basic Gray patterned paper that has the colours and I embossed some swirls onto another BG paper to replicate the swirls in the inspiration piece.  I then simply created my word panel with a Spellbinders sentiment label and I die cut the Memory Box thanks 3 times in black and the turquoise colour.  These were stacked and inlaid into the turquoise panel.  I layered onto a black wavy strip, created with a border punch...remember those?  Another throwback product that I used today are those two brads for that extra pop of colour.  I love the dress in the inspiration piece!
I am also entering this into the Moxie Fab Wonderful Words challenge
and the SSS Work It Wednesday challenge
3 challenges...WooHoo
Thanks for stopping in and I hope that your Monday is marvelous!Chriss
