Colour Throwdown challenge 102


I am heading back to Emerald to see some of my family this coming week and had a bit of time spare after packing today, so made this card for the Colour Throwdown Challenge 102. I was sooo tempted to use flower stamps but decided to challenge myself a bit more than that LOL.

As we don't have Marina Mist here yet in Australia, I went with Ballet Blue. I know there is quite a difference but thought that the closest of what I had.

The white background has been embossed with a Cuttlebug folder and I used Nestabilities for the circles. I love this set from Taylored Expressions - so perfect for teenage cards.

Card: Stampin' Up Not Quite Navy, Whisper White, Ballet Blue and Wild Wasabi
Ink: Not Quite Navy, Ballet Blue and Wild Wasabi
Stamps: You're My Hero - Taylored Expressions
Other: SU Wild Wasabi Ribbon, Large oval, small star and wide oval punches, rivet from my stash
