When I said I wanted to do challenges did you think I could do two in one week? I told you I was on a roll - I'm rockin' the stamp room this week at my house!! Today I'm sharing a card I made using the color combo challenge from the Play Date Cafe Blog! I was inspired by this pretty color combo and wanted to try it out. Here's the combo they posted for the challenge:
And here is my card. I didn't have exactly the right colors - my mint is a little more blue but it's close, I think! I chose to use the stamp set By the Tide to create this card since I thought the colors had a bit of a beachy feel.
I love the fancy fan embossing folder used as a background on this - i think it sort of mirrors the look of fish scales! I also added on some bakers twine and a pretty button from the Sale-a-Bration Sycamore Street ribbon and button pack. These buttons are so cute!
