Blogger's Challenge #148: Color Challenge!

Our challenge was to use blue, orange and moss.  I went with something retiring, something staying and something returning for my colors.  The color retiring is Mellow Moss...Oh how I'll miss this color!  The color staying is Not Quite Navy and boy, am I GLAD! It will be moving to the Regals Collection.  Finally, the color returning is an In Color from last year called Tangerine Tango!  LOVED this color...but I love ALL orange!  It'll be apart of the Brights collection.

I made this card for my friend and our school secretary.  I used the upcoming Decor Stencil called Mostly Vintage.  With this one, you get both the stencil and the mask!  I used the stencil on this one with Tangerine Tango, Mellow Moss and sponge daubers.  I stamped the sentiment right over the stencil in Not Quite Navy.  I also brought out my Pretties kit and made a Tangerine Tango flower for under the Mellow Moss taffeta ribbon...get this while it's available!  I also used the pretties to add a little bling!

Be sure to see how the other players used these colors to make some wonderful creations!

Ohhh! So pretty. Simple, but elegant. I haven't used my stencil yet....I've really got to pull it out because, obviously, it will make fabulous cards! Great job this week.

I love the colors together and what a pretty card! I think that the SU colors will 'go with' what is out there- they just are retiring so many at one time! Yikes!!!
