Seahorse Thank You...Just Us Girls Challenge #432~Colour Week: Turquoise, Brown & Khaki

Hello,

Well, we had a wee taste of Spring this week. Now, freezing rain and snow...ugh. Oh well, technically, it's still 'winter' here...at least until June *grin*

A warm welcome this week's Just Us Girls Challenge #432~Colour Week, where our charming Nancy invites us to use Turquoise, Brown and Khaki in our designs.


If you've come from - or are heading to - the challenge blog, you'll see an array of fabulous cards from our March Guest Designer Stef Perry and my talented teammates: Sue, Angie, Vicki, Ina, Bobby, Nancy, Lisa, Maria.

In my mind, the palette spoke 'ocean images', so I reached for my Hero Arts Layering Seahorse set and Waves stencil and this happened...


NOTE: Honoured and thrilled to be selected as a A Blog Named Hero Challenge Favourite (April 13, 2018)! THANK YOU!

Seahorses may not be turquoise in real life, but in card-making land...anything is possible!

My card is heading to the A Blog Named Hero~Use Your Favourite Hero Arts Products gallery. I don't have a lot of their layering sets, but those I do (goldfish, seahorse, pineapple, peacock, ice cream), I love, love and LOVE!

Looking forward to seeing your turquoise, brown and khaki creations in the gallery!

Thank you for dropping by!

In the card making world we can make anything whatever color we want, and I think a turquoise seahorse was a fabulous idea! Love the rounded edges on this gorgeous design! Have a fabulous day despite the weather! You probably don't want me to say that it's going to be 75 and sunny here! ;)
