Bloggers challenge ~Color Challenge Orange/Blue/Moss

It's been quite a week here. We've completely done over the bedroom, made some changes to our living room and my stamp room. This is the first time I've been able to sit down and stamp all week..

Brocade blue is a color I struggle with... but I have to tell you, I'm VERY happy with the way this turned out. This is going to make me play some more, I can tell!!

The photo doesn't show the pumpkin button in the right color for some reason, but it's an identical match to the paper behind the focal point.

I'm really loving this embossing folder, that will be available in the summer mini. I really love this color combination, one I would have never chosen on my own. I'm also looking forward to seeing what the other bloggers challenge members are up to this week. I can't wait to see the creations this week! Have a great weekend.

Now that you have discovered Brocade Blue ... isn't it a shame that it is on the "farewell" list!!! I haven't used it in awhile, either ... but it has always been a favourite! Beautiful serene scene Selene! Oh ... giggle ... I really didn't mean to be a poet!!! :D That does sound funny! Say this quickly 6 times "Serene scene Selene!" :wink: Hugs, Andrea xxx
