Color Throwdown #222

It’s Color Throwdown time again this week, and Broni is our hostess today for the last challenge of 2012!  Despite the fact that I’m just NOT a fan of the color blue, I do like blue and yellow together so this was a fun challenge!
swatch 222
My card, shown up above uses the Complimentary Greetings stamp set from My Favorite Things, and I just had to give the chalkboard technique that I learned from Betsy Veldman another try.  The papers I used are Boarding Pass from October Afternoon, and I embellished my design with some Die-Namics Stacking Stars and Fishtail Flags STAX.
On the inside I added a few more stars, and another sentiment from the stamp set…
