AYSI233 My Favorite Duo

Happy Friday, everyone!  It's time for a new challenge at As You See It....oh, this one made me struggle!

Image may contain: text that says 'Fill in the Blank.... My favourite colour duo is 08.28.20 As Yoa See CHALLENGE #233'

How can we choose a favorite duo??  There are so many combinations to choose from!  Eventually, I chose "Tiffany" blue, in this case, Soft Sky, and tan (kraft).  I think Soft Sky was one of the best colors that SU ever came out with and I was so sad when it retired!  I have a little stash left and I use it sparingly!  So here we go:


I pulled out a lot of oldies for this beachy card today!  The seashell plate was stamped in Crumb Cake and diecut with a square stitched die, and some torn Kraft cardstock was adhered behind it.

The Soft Sky card base was stamped with an old Cornish Heritage Farms cheesecloth stamp, then I added some Crafty Secrets beachy images along with a few water droplets:


A little loop of Linen Braid and some gold Metallic Pearls finished it off.  I left it blank, no sentiment, but I think this will end up being a thank you card!!  So happy you popped in today!  I can't wait to see what your favorite color duo will be!  Be sure to check out was the other designers chose...there are some "wow" ones there!  You can see them at the As You See It blog!

I wanted to share a couple more cards I got recently!  This one was from Laurie:

and a beautiful floral from Beth:

And this cutie was for Cassidy from my friend Sally:

Check out how cute this is on the inside:

We both loved it....I loved them all!  Thanks so much, ladies!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

I can hear the ocean waves lapping on the shore and feel the sand between my toes! This is lovely!

Ooh, I love these colors together, LeAnne! Perfect colors for a sea shell card! Love the subtle stamping in the background and bits of texture you've added!

Well, you know how I feel about blue - but you always seem to make me love it a little more each time you use it, LeAnne!
Such a beautiful trio of colors, and gorgeous card...

Lorraine said...

Gorgeous color combo and the card is wonderful. I love how you layered all those images to make a perfect background.

Hi LeAnne! What a pretty card - it has such a soft vintage feel to it and I agree with you...that Soft Sky is one of my favorites, too! You'd never know that these are "oldies" - the images seem timeless!

I love this card, LeAnne! And I also love Soft Sky, but I have only a small stash...haha. I hope to post a card for this challenge but have to figure out which duo ???

Love the soft, beachy feel of your card LeAnne and that shell plate fascinates me every time you use it. Gorgeeous!
