Marina Mist - My New Fav Color

Hello all my bloggy and crafty friends!
I have a new favorite color.
Purple and Blue have always been my favs, but the
Stampin' Up "Marina Mist" is now my fav blue. It's so pretty!

I thought I'd try to make a monochromatic card today. These types of cards usually don't pan out for me, but today, I'm very happy with the turn-out.

  • Marina Mist Card base cut @ 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
  • Whisper White cut @ 4" x 5 1/4"
  • Marina Mist Designer Series cut @ 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"
  • Marina Mist Designer Series strip was scrap and reverse side of pattern background paper
  • Marina Mist image mat cut @ 3 1/8" x 3 5/8"
  • Whisper White image mat cut @ 3" x 3 1/2"
