ICS Blog Hop - Epic Celebrations

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the February Inspire, Create, & Share blog hop.  This month we are still celebrating Sale-a-Braiton, but there is a twist.  One of our hoppers, Anastasia from Stampin' Blondie came up with a color challenge for us.  

Here is her color challenge:

I was a little intimidated when I saw her choice.  There is no Whisper White, or Very Vanilla.  In the end, I had so much fun thinking outside of the box, and am very happy with how my card came out.

Here is my card:

I used the Epic Celebrations stamp set.  I stamped the sneakers in the background using all four different blues in the challenge.  I arranged them from lightest to darkest, and worked top to bottom.  Then I added a strip of Island Indigo cardstock embossed with the Hexagons folder.  I also added a strip of Night of Navy cardstock embossed with the Oh My Stars folder.  For my greeting, I used the Lots of Labels framlelits to cut out a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock.  I stamped my greeting in Night of Navy, and added some dots from the stamp set in Bermuda Bay.  I backed the greeting with 3/8" Mini Chevron Ribbon in Bermuda Bay.

That is all I have to share for today, head on over to my friend Darla's blog see what she is sharing tonight.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
