Color Throwdown Challenge #355

Hello everyone...hope you are staying cool!!! The temps have been up to 104 the last few, that's hot!!! I wish I had remote start on my car...then it would be cool when I needed it!!! I know...I'm a wimp and proud of it...LOL!!! Anyway....

It's Wednesday and time for this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Barbara is our hostess and she has picked some beachy colors for us to play with!!!

My card features the Taylored Expressions Little Bits - Sailboat die. The sails were cut out of Kraft in Color patterned paper and the base was cut out of smoky slate cardstock. The background was created by sponging with brilliant blue and bashful blue ink and then spritzing the background with Sheer Shimmer - Frost Spritz.... love the shimmer and texture!!

The sentiment from Taylored Expressions In and Out Birthday set was stamped with Memento Gray Flannel and...

The waves cut with one of  the TE Skinny Mini Borders dies out of brilliant blue and pool party cardstock finishes it off.
