This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 400 - Retro where we were to pick from 1 of 3 color combos hosted by our loving Betty who is retiring from the CC host list. We surely will miss her. I had the honor and pleasure of guest hosting in January so I choose COLOR CHALLENGE # 356 - Lucky Island Basics for my pick for today. I love these colors together and had such a fun time with them.
My layout is from Saturday's WALTZINGMOUSE SKETCH CHALLENGE # 122.
My island indigo and lucky limeade layers where trimmed with scalloped borders and layered for Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 402 - Layered Scallops. I also used a scallop matt for my focal image which by the way is new to me from Verve Stamps. I rarely win anything, think I could count on 1 hand the number of times but guess who was one of the lucky winners in last months MOJO? Yep, me and this set was my winning pick. I have played the MOJO Monday challenge for years. I guess perserverance really does pay off huh?
My sentiment is stamped in basic black on white, cut and embossed with Nestie oval and matted on basic gray Nestie scalloped oval.
Hope you like it and now I am headed to the line to vote since my plans for the last week got waylayed to do early voting.
