Paper and Ink Imaginings

Teal, Lilac and Olive Belated Birthday Card


I wanted to use the You Are Lovely set from Hero Arts, but not use one of my go to color combinations. SO…I thought for a bit, and pulled out a color combination from some other year. Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lilac, Old Olive. I am 98% happy with the way it turned out. I would be 100% happy with it if I still had a stash of retired Lovely Lilac cardstock to use as the mat.  😉

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, Papertrey Ink, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, inks – Stampin’ Up! Bermuda Bay, Lovely Lilac (retired), Old Olive, VersaFine Onyx Black, embossing powder – Ranger Silver Pearl.

  1. Hope things are well with the family.

    • Mike, thanks for the kind comment! Things are pretty good – Mom got released from the hospital Thursday afternoon, she is recuperating at home. The procedure and hospital time kicked her butt – which was my expectation (I am the realist) not hers (she is the optimist). I am thinking it will take her 2 – 4 weeks to get back to her normal energy level.

  2. Beautiful, I love the colors that you chose they work so well together.

    • Thank you, Miss Hammie! It was a popular combination when SU! still had the color “Taken with Teal” (not quite as bright as Bermuda Bay).
