Floral Wishes

How are you this rainy Wednesday morning?  I'd better bust a move if I want to get to my 11:00 gym class, so I'm gonna make this fast.

I was perusing my retiring stamps this morning looking for something to go with the color challenge I'd picked out, and I came across Choose Happiness which I haven't used very much and voila!  This card was born.  Petite Pairs is retiring too, but luckily our beloved Hardwood is sticking around for another year.

All of the cardstock (except the mat on the main image) is Thick Whisper White; I just scribbled some marker on acrylic blocks, misted with water, and stamped it for the Calypso Coral and Night of Navy panels, which gave me lovely pastel versions of the colors.  Added bonus:  the water made some stripes appear on the paper, which is a happy accident.

Here's this week's Global Design Project color combo:

I do like these colors together, I saw a lady wearing this combination the other day.  (I'd totally wear an outfit in this palette too.)  I also used this week's Paper Players sketch:

And I'd better fly out the door.  Cheers, y'all!

I do like navy and coral colors together. I love navy. I wish it would stay en vogue, but even though they call it a fashion neutral like black and grey, it seems to come and go. I actually prefer it OVER black, but that could be because it is a blue and blue is my favorite color.

Very nice card, Kik.
