The Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC #27






... this is Guam...


When i saw these colors of this week's challenge, it reminded me of Guam right away... Guam is a tropical paradise & US territory in the Pacific. The island is just gorgeous!! These 3 color combination reminds me of White Sand, blue sky, and blue/emerald green (or this case, light minty green) ocean. Also i remembered i bought this ribbon, the color of blue & green, wanting to use for Ocean/beach themed cards, so here they are! And i didn't use any other colors than those 3 colors !! :-) A bit of explanation on the cards here. I used Vellum on the front, and on underneath CS, i did embossing. And that's why it's a bit fuzzy looking, but toned the white embossing down, to make the color, more "off white".

I luv "color theme challenges" but unfortunately my old digital camera doesn't show the actual colors very well...:-( someday, hopefully i'll be able to buy a better camera... also, i realized these CHALLENGE becomes a big CHALLENGE since i don't have all my stamping supplies here... but i'll do my best :-)
