Colors of the Sea....Bermuda Bay, Coastal Cabana

Howdy folks!  Today's card is a mixture of old and new!  I've got some oldish? stamp sets - but not terribly old - Delightful Dozen and Secret Garden.  I've got some new colors - Bermuda Bay (although, technically it's a comeback!) and Coastal Cabana - mixed in with some not so new colors - Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Primrose Petals.  I really love that about Stampin' Up's color collections.  You can easily mix and match them - they will typically "go" together.  They've made it almost impossible to come up with an icky color combo.  

I also threw in our new Modern Mosaic embossing folder.  Be prepared to see a lot of this on my blog - I just love it!  It adds a classic element and it's so hot right now!

For the flower - I simply embossed it with Black embossing powder and used a Blender Pen and the Coastal Cabana ink pad to color it.  I went back with a Bermuda Bay Marker to color in the stamens (is that what they are called? - I'm having flashbacks to my 7th grade science class.  And unfortunately - that was a very long time ago.  We won't go into that tho!)

I like how the ribbon adds a splash of color - but am wishing some of my new ribbon was here already - I'm dying to play with the new Chevron ribbon.

Your right Jen, virtually every color combination works with Stampin' Ups color palette and I too love that! Cute card and yes, I've been surfing around over at Craft Project Central and I would love to win that subscription! :)
