CR84FN41 Color Challenge

Good morning and thanks for stopping by! I am back with my second entry in the CR84FN Color Challenge and our main colors are steel blue, gray and yellow. I really like this color combo and immediately thought of the beach for some reason. LOL! I guess we must have stayed in a condo decorated with these colors, who knows? I began my paper search first then turned to the sentiment I wanted to use and found this Philippians 1:6 Plain Jane stamp by Verve that I love. The hardest time I had was determining what "steel blue" is and I kinda mixed it up a little but hopefully it will pass. Here's my card for this challenge.

I started with steel blue as my base and chose a patterned DP with gray and yellow from the Lemon Flower Stack by DCWV and a diamond patterned DP, featuring shades of gray, from Authentique's Blissful Collection. I decided on clean, straight lines for this card and used some non-fussy steel blue seam binding and yellow twill ribbon in keeping with my theme. Martha's Scallop 3-Dot border punch completes the geometric feel of this card  but a few apple blossom flowers add a feminine touch. :-) The sentiment was stamped in Versa Color's Atlantic ink and I layered it with graduating circle dies by Spellbinders.

I just love this combo and will definitely use this again, perhaps with a beach theme. Hats off to the creative design team for this challenge!!!

Make today count!
