I {heart} this color combo...

I've been seeing this color combo on a lot of the interior design blogs I visit. (Have you seen the HGTV Green Home?) I'd been wanting to use it on a card, so I paired it with FTL37 to make this quick one.

BTW, if you love aqua, turquoise, or any shade in between, check out House of Turquoise. Total eye candy.

I'm heading out of town after work today to visit the in-laws, so I won't be around to visit all your lovely blogs until Monday. Have a fabulous weekend!

Stamps: Garden of Life (PTI)
Paper: Kraft, Cool Caribbean, PTI white
Ink: Tempting Turquoise
Accessories: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots, SU scallop edge punch, flowers (Prima), ribbon (Michaels), brad (Doodlebug)

This is a terrific combo. And I like it with the layout you chose. Especially with the large, white, embossed panel which gives it a really fresh look.

Hope you had a great visit.
