Card 1 Color Challenge: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, Pool Party

I made two cards with the above color combination, and I may enter one or both of them into this week's Paper Players' color challenge. For a long time I thought about the colors and the DS papers I have before jumping in and making the cards.

For this card I used the following supplies:

-DSP Botanical Gazette

-Card Stock: Not Quite Navy, Certainly Celery, Pool Party, Whisper White

-Buttons: Not Quite Navy

-Scallop Border Punch

-Ink: Not Quite Navy

-Ribbon: Certainly Celery

-Stamp Set: All Year Cheer 1

What I like best about this challenge is that it forced me out of my comfort zone and pushed me into using a new style as well as colors I probably would not have put together on my own.
