A Wonderful Adventure

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today.
Happy first day of summer as well. It's the longest day of the year today. Our day here in Pittsburgh was sunny and warm. A nice turnaround after the 3 days of rain we just had.  
I was sick with a cold this week. I felt so bad on Sunday because it was Father's Day and I was in bed. The congestion and coughing really hit me hard on Saturday and Sunday. Hubby made chicken soup for me and didn't complain at all. I did have a card for him but no gift.
My intent was to go to this specialty candy store near my home and get him some of his favorite chocolates. But, that didn't happen for Sunday. Hopefully, I will make it there sometime this weekend.
Now, onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #742. Stef was our hostess and she chose balmy blue, night of navy and lemon-lime twist for her color trio. Optional was to make an ocean scene or masculine card.
balmy blue, night of navy, lemon-lime twist

For my card, I decided to go with the ocean scene. I needed a graduation card for a young man and my thoughts went to him entering the sea of life. I will mention that inside the card.

Started my card by stamping the balmy blue designer paper with balmy blue ink. I used the texture stamp from the Stampin'-Up "sea of textures" set. Then at the bottom of the paper I stamped the seaweed in lemon lime twist ink.

Since I didn't buy the dies for the Stampin'-Up set, I had to use the Seaside set from Reverse Confetti for the octopus. He is stamped in night of navy ink.

The sentiment is from the Stampin-Up set. The netting, seaweed and coral are dies from CottageCutz. I cut the seaweed and coral in lemon-lime twist and the netting in crumb cake (neutral).

To finish off my card, I wrapped some twine, tied a bow and attached the octopus with dimensional adhesive. Well that's it for me for this post. So until next time......God bless.
