Peggy gave us the colors of Basic Black, Calypso Coral, Baja Breeze and Neutrals of Choice. The dessert; use arrows, triangles or burlap on your card. No dessert for me.
I had such time of it....trying to get a decent photo! LOL Anyway, I used a porthole stamp and sponged an image of a setting sun. The first embossing, is a little hard to see, but it goes across the Baja Breeze panel. The second embossing is on the Calypso Coral panel. The background panel is SU! paper too, but I don't know the name. I added an Inkadinkado sentiment with a couple of flourishes and a Prima brad.
I feel like this card needs "something". Maybe a silhouette in the setting sun? If you have a suggestion, I am all ears...or eyes ....lol
Thanks for taking a peek!

Wow Kathleen! this is so so cool!! I love your setting sun in the porthole. It is blended so perfectly and is so realistic. And using a porthole is so appropriate for a former Navy gal :) I really like how your whole card is laid out from the embossing to the dp. I LOVE IT!! And I don't think it needs anything else at all. It's so great just the way it is!!

I love that porthole with its setting sun..what a cool stamp! Great use of texture and I love the dp you choose (I always go to my dp first on a color challenge to see what matches..yours are perfect!!). Way to go Kathleen!!!

Beautiful card using these colors, Kathleen! Your panels are so impressive! Love the sun looking out the porthole (do you feel like you're still in the navy at times?) I find when I'm stuck in that mode, adding a sponged edge really gives a different look to my card without adding more items to it. Hope that helps~
