OWH Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge

The Color Challenge this week for Operation Write Home's Midweek Throwdown is blue and yellow.  I am barely getting this in under the wire!
I know this looks kind of orange but in real life it really is more yellow and the blue is more turquoise.  I just can't seem to get the colors right with the photo editing software.  The paper is Raspberry Road Designs Luxury Paper Collection. It reminded me of the illustrations on sewing patterns back in the day.   It was a gift from Cardmaking and Papercrafting Magazine.  I got the idea to use it from Desert Rose Outpost because she used one of the papers in the collection for one of her cards (and she did a very beautiful job).  The sewing thread and scissor stamps are from Stampers Best Sewing Kit Stamp Set and the sentiment is from Great Impressions Stamps.  I used Stampin'Up! Tempting Turquoise ink and Creative Memories cardstock.

Happy Crafting!
