Blue, Kiwi, and White!

Happy Friday! Here we are...the start of Summer!! School ended for us here this week and I'm so mixed up with the days that I didn't even realize that Friday was already upon us...oh my, what was I thinking!!! So, very quickly, I came up with this card for this week's Blogger's Challenge. We are to use the colors blue, kiwi, and white. I went with Stampin' Up's Baja Breeze for the Blue and I ended up using Old Olive because it was the closest color that I had to kiwi. Olive...kiwi...they are both fruits so I thought that it would be alright...lol! :D The blossom is from Stampin' Up's Bella Blossoms (retired) and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. I found the scrap of patterned paper in my stash. It's also from Stampin' Up. To finish it off, I added some faux stitching to the Baja Breeze strip (it also added a little more white). As I said, this was a very quick card to put together, so that's about it for all of the details. For more inspiration with this color challenge, you can click here to see what the other Ladies from the group have come up with. Thank you so very much for stopping by for a visit. I'm looking forward to having some extra stamping time now that school is out. Hope to see you soon...Toodles! :D
