WOW...has it been an amazing first week over at the Create with Connie and Mary Summer Edition site! We have had lots of fun and unique project's (all with full picture tutorials) shared and this is only the first week!

Oh by the way...the Saturday challenges are the only projects that we share with everyone...become a subscriber to see all the other projects and tutorials!
So here is my card for the Saturday challenge. This week we have a color challenge of using Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, Basic Grey and Not Quite Navy.
Our subscribers who participate in the Saturday challenges are entered to win one of two $75 gift certificates or one of two FREE subscriptions to Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition. Who wouldn't want either one of those?
More about my card...I used the Sail Away stamp set from in the Summer Mini and then of course the colors from this week. The stamp is so fun to watercolor! I also used the Travel Log stamp set for the "adventure" sentiment that I thought went well with the image.
I added a few Jumbo Eyelets to tie in the sailing/nautical theme. I also added a border of 1/4" Early Espresso Grosgrain ribbon around the Not Quite Navy card stock. If you look closely you can see it in this picture. I think that it helped with the sailing/nautical theme too.
Be sure to check out the other Design Team members projects using these colors this week too by stopping by the Create with Connie and Mary site!
