Stampin Royalty Challenge #14

This week at Stampin' Royalty we have a great colour challenge for you. I started working on this card and then went off in a completely different direction than I was expecting.

First I started by checking out all the DSP that Stampin' Up has, trying to figure out if I could find one that had all 3 colours in it. I found that Tempting Turqouise, and Taken With Teal are so close that it was hard to make them distinctive. Well the day I was making this card, my latest shipment from SU had arrived, and in it was the Pirate Party Pack that I had ordered for my son's upcoming birthday. Well, So Saffron and Taken With Teal were in the pack, so I found the eye patch sticker that had both colours in it.
Next I looked for any DSP (patterned paper) that had Taken with Teal in it. I found this paper in the Sunny Day Simply Scrappin' Kit. When I put the eye patch over this paper, I knew I had my card. The string for the patch came from the Pirate Party Kit. The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from the 'Look Who's Turning..." stamp set, and the 'Ahoy Matey' sentiment I wrote myself with a Stampin' Write marker. I think my son will really appreciate this card for his pirate birthday party in a few weeks.
