Color Challenge Card and Exciting News

Happy Wednesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. This is such an exciting day for me. I just found out that I have advanced to the final round on the Spellbinders Design Team Competition. See the announcement here.

It's such a huge honor for me to have advanced to this point with Spellbinders. I am among some fabulous designers in the group of 19 that are part of the final round. I will give it my best shot that's for sure.

My card for today is one that I created for the color challenge #428 on Splitcoaststampers. Kim is our hostess and she chose the palette of lucky limeade, island indigo and pool party. The colors seemed so masculine to me so I went that direction and created a Father's Day card.

My designer papers are from Stampin-Up's world spectacular and sweet shop collections, The image is Stampin-Up's "open sea" set. The layout I used is an older De-constructed sketch #90.

I used a Spellbinders square die to cut my squares. To complete my card I punched an anchor using a Martha Stewart punch. well, that's it for me for today so until next time........God bless.
