Same Card, Different Colors

Hi everyone, I hope your day is going well.

Today I want to share a re-make of this card HERE.  The original card I made I used the traditional baby colors on it, so I told my daughter I wanted to make another card using the colors that were on the shower invitation, which I translated to Stampin' Up! colors, Calypso Coral, Smoky Slate and Pink Pirouette (I bet Blushing Bride would look good too) on Whisper White.  Now I don't have Calypso Coral ribbon, so I used the new Strawberry Slush 3/8" Ruffle Stretch Trim behind the Pink Pirouette card stock strip.  You know what, after I was done making the card and using this color combo, I have to say that I really like it!  Of course, the card is much cuter in real life.

So as you can see, sometimes it is good to get out of our comfort zone and think outside of the box, give it a try, you just might be surprised at the results too, like I was!   Mary
