Blogger's Challenge--Orange, Blue, and Moss

Yikes, don't that sound like a really weird color combo.  I think because the colors were not specific I originally thought it was going to be hard to pick the ones I wanted that would go together.  But if was not hard, and I am actually enjoying this combo.  Bayou Blue, Mellow Moss and Dusty Durango--all either retired or soon to be retired colors.  So I may have to make a few more cards with these to use up some stash of paper--like a few thousand or so should be about right to use these three colors, lol. 

Anyway, back to the challenge.  You can see what the rest of the girls did by clicking HERE.

I chose to use my Words by Wanda again.  I just got a new file system for my stamps.  It is actually a architect's file drawer system!  I have fifteen pull out drawers that are three inches deep and about 3 foot by 4 foot.  Fits all my stamps perfectly!  And you can just pull out the drawer and see all the sets right there.  I love it. So I hope to be using a lot of sets that don't normally get used since I can find them.  Forgot some of the sets I have. 

Stamps: Words by Wanda
Paper: Dusty Durango, Mellow Moss, Blue Bayou dp, Whisper White
Ink: Basic Black
Other: markers, ribbon, bow easy

Thanks so much for stopping by today, hope you have a great weekend!
