Hello, Teal

Hi there!  One of my not-so-fave retired colors from Stampin' Up! is Taken With Teal. Always kind of avoided using it, but I do hate waste.   I made a few cards with the teal cardstock, and this is one of them:


And you know, it kind of grew on me.  :-)  It ain't so bad after all.


The sentiment from Fiskars' All Year Greetings says "hello," but this is actually a birthday card.  I like being able to stretch my stamps as much as I can.  A Spellbinders' Corner Flourish die cut in black -- times 2, placed end-to-end -- helped create the central focal point.

Thank you so much for coming by today!

Now you've got me wanting to get my teal out and use it. This is gorgeous and elegant with the black contrast and beautiful die cuts. I used to really like teal, but didn't use it a lot. Still have a lot of it. Still have a lot of Glorious Green, too, and have been thinking about how I could use it. I, too, hate waste.
