Keeping it Simple with Navy & Coral

Hello Friends & Followers!  I have two cards for your viewing pleasure this evening.  I was inspired by the color combination of the last (hopefully just for a while) Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge 58

Kim, the owner of Wilson Designs and hostess of the OWTC Challenge Blog needs a little 'Kim time', so I wish her well and keep my fingers crossed that things settle down and she is back to it soon.  ;)  So naturally I had to use her 'Nauticool' set by Wilson Designs to create this CAS card:
(Please click on the photos for clearer resolution).  I was having so much fun with this color combination (and I have officially used Cameo Coral more this week than I have perhaps in my entire life put together) that I went on to create this card using 'Dance' by There She Goes Clear Stamps (who is having sneak peeks and a release party Saturday night BTW...) that I was having fun with the other day:
My original intention with this card was to use it for a 'not more than 1/3 of the white space covered' challenge, but the mathematician in me could not in good faith enter it, I just sense I've covered more than a third of the white cardstock.  ;)  I didn't have any navy pearls (DOH!) so I took a marker and colored in a white one (note - if you plan on doing this too - I recommend waiting until the card is finished otherwise so as not to smear the color off the pearls, or onto anything else, as you attach it to the base).  This card also fulfills the requirements of Really Reasonable Ribbon's Challenge 30: 'Keep it Clean' (with ribbon).

Well, that is about it for the evening.  I am getting all excited for Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoaststampers - if you haven't played before it is wicked fun and I highly recommend it!  It is a great way to jump start your mojo and add a ton of cards to your stash in a short period of time and meet a lot of nice stampers too, I myself have made many a friend via VSN at SCS.  Note to self - clear a space in the spare bedroom to set up the photo cube for the weekend... charge camera battery... clean scrubber... but you don't need to listen to me think aloud.  ;)

Have a great night!!
