I pulled out my Colour Coach today to find a colour combination that would be a little different & for colours that I would never think to use together.  I went with the "Getting Started" Combination, which has gone perfectly with today's card.

I've used the sketch from Clean and Simple which just cries for a clean & simple card!

I've also combined it with my groups weekly challenge for Late Night Stampers.  Challenge 108 - Let's Hear it for the Boys - Masculine Cards

Base Card - Old Olive - 5 7/8" x 4 1/8" or 15cm x 10.5cm - cut, score & fold in half
Layer 1 - Marina Mist - 5 7/8" x 2" or 15cm x 5cm
Layer 2 - Real Red - 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" or 10cm x 6cm
Layer 3 - Whisper White - 2 3/8" x 3 3/8" x 9.5cm x 5.5cm

For my card, I randomly stamped Marina Mist Cardstock using Marina Mist Ink.  I then adhered this down the LHS of Old Olive.  Using Marina Mist Ink, I stamped the image directly onto the Whisper White.  I stamped the greeting in Real Red Ink off to the right of Whisper White Cardstock.  I adhered this to Real Red Cardstock & tore the bottom of the Real Red Cardstock

Using Hemp Twine, I tied this around the middle of the Whisper White & adhered the whole lot to the base card.  I threaded a piece of Hemp Twine through a buttom & adhered to the card.

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Seaworthy, Sincere Salutations
Inks - Real Red, Marina Mist
Cardstock - Whisper White, Old Olive, Real Red, Marina Mist
Ribbon - Hemp Twine
Accessories - Snail Adhesive, Multipurpose Glue, Button - Real Red

Until next time, Enjoy!
