Tea For Two Swap Card

This was my swap for my stamp club meeting last Sunday.  Did you know SU is redoing their colors AGAIN?1?!  Well, this time I am not buying all the new colors.  I am going to use up my old ones first.  By that time they will have changed the colors YET AGAIN!  I don't really mind so much except that they're getting rid of two of my fave blues--Baja Breeze and Not Quite Navy.  I can hardly even make a card without Baja, and NQN is one of my go-to masculine colors.  Grrr...


Anyway, this card uses Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade, and Bashful Blue CS.  (Bash Blue is also going away).  The patterned paper is Tea For Two, which I adore.  The embossing folder is new from SU, in their spring mini.  The ribbon I got from their clearance rack.  Huh--now I know why!  Come to think of it, everything on this card is SU and current except the ribbon.  How about that?  I can do it when I want to LOL!

Thanks for looking!

WOW Amy Beautiful card. The colors of Green and blue and those patterned papers go together so well. I read about the color change as well and I loved NQN as well..It is just THE perfect color as you said for Masculine projects. I am sure SU Will have something similar. :))
