Cool Caribbean



Trying to use paper that I have a bunch of lately. I have a good amount of cool caribbean but even more marigold morning! I should never buy whole packs of one color, but sometimes it's the only way. Sooo since this is a retired color and I do not have the ink that goes with it, I am going to be doing a lot of my Survivor cards with it! I used to love it but now I seem to be having a hard time matching it. I used it with black and white on one card (my old favorite) and chocolate and white on another, the last card I used it with certainly celery and almost amethyst. These cards are all for my Survivor who got voted off last week, Joel. I have 8 of them this time! What was I thinking? That means I have to potentially make 24 cards! But I have 6 left and we are down to 13 left so things are looking better. Oh, the prize is, what else but cards! The winner gets a whole bunch but several more places get cards, last time I received 5 cards. That was fun.

The first card is a CASE (of the layout). The second card is the sketch challenge this week and the third card is just kind of fun using the new Merci set and some purple eyelets, that iridescent ribbon again and a celery green colored crystal brad in the center of the flower. No sentiments so that they can be used for anything.
