PPA Color Challenge... Not Singing the Blues!

Yes, blue is my favorite color and Stampin' Up! has a lot of great shades of blue. This weeks PPA (please see the post below to see the link) color challenge was Not Quite Navy, Marina Mist, and Bashful Blue. I love the look of white embossed images when I am doing a card with a monochromatic theme. It just looks so sharp against the different shades. Since it is summer, I wanted my card to have a more light and summery feel to it so I used the Bashful Blue as my card front and the medium shade of Marina Mist as my card base. I kept the darker shade of Not Quite Navy for the accent colors and used it here and there on the card. Since the Pocket Silhouettes images are petite, I love using them on small squares or circles so that I can use several of the images on one card. I like the variety it gives and the clean look. And what can I say about my sentiment "thinking of you" from Teeny Tiny Wishes? I love, love, love that stamp set. It is really the most versatile set you can buy and has a saying for pretty much every occasion. It really should be in every stampers collection.

Cardstock: SU! Bashful Blue, Marina Mist, and Not Quite Navy
Stamps: SU!'s Pocket Silhouettes and Teeny Tiny Wishes
Punches: SU!'s Word Window and Modern Label
