A Challenge Combo!

Hello and welcome back! Today's card is a three-fer! It was inspired by the "Get Well Soon" challenge for SUO#131, the color challenge for CYCI#87, and the sketch challenge for PPA#269

Here's today's card:

To come up with the color palette for this card, I pulled out my trusty original Color Coach (again!). Many of the blues in the SU color families have a greenish tint to them, and I wanted truer blues, so I pulled from my stash.  The colors here are Marina Mist, Not Quite Navy and Bashful Blue, along with Whisper White. As you can see, there isn't much stamping on this card, just lots of layers. The sentiment is from the "vintage" stamp set Delightful Dozen and is stamped in Not Quite Navy ink. I pierced the large scallop circle to create a bit of texture to complement the embossed layer.

Thanks for stopping by, and have a great day!
