The color of my eyes....



The challenge this week at Less is More is to make a card using the color of your eyes.

Hmmm. Well, sometimes they are blue, or green, or even grey depending on what I wear. I looked in the mirror and today they looked kinda blueish grey...so I chose SU's  Bordering Blue. I needed a darker shade also, so I chose Brocade blue,too. Both colors are retired now, I think. I had to dig around my stash to find some blues that would work, and that's what I came up with.

I kept the card very simple, letting the sentiment be the focal point. I just LOVE this set...it's SU's Sounds of Joy from the Holiday mini. I made several cards with it today. My favorite are the ones I made embossing with silver. I'll be posting those soon!

  12. Awww, my two favorite retired blues (moment of silence). I don't have this stamp set, yet, but I'm kinda leaning towards it more every day. :)
