Stampin’ Up! Sailing Home for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hi Stampers, Today we have a color challenge using Night of Navy, Balmy Blue and Soft Suede.  When I am deciding which product to use I start with  matching up the color challenges with our Designer Series Paper as inspiration.   When I saw this combo of colors, the choice was made in seconds, Sailing Away and the Come Sail Away Suite.  This is one of my favorite bundles in the annual catalog.  Enjoy and have fun looking at the cards from our hop!

The color challenge:
