The turquoise color is the new HS.
Hopefully will post a project in the next day or two.

I made this card yesterday afternoon for a bridal shower. The bride had picked peacock feathers for a sort of color theme for her wedding stuff. I thought that Enchanted Evening would be a great match. The bride exclaimed that it matched her invitations; so it was a score!
I was concerned that the PTI twill would not be "formal" enough for the mood of the card, but the rich color & its slight sheen made it work well.
It's very fun when your handmade card is well-received - the bride asked if I made it & that she was trying to figure out how I did it. Gratifying, for sure.
Thanks for looking!

I used Betsy Veldman's color scheme of New Leaf, Summer Sunrise, Pure Poppy (though on Nichole's blog, she said Raspberry Fizz) & Sweet Blush. The picture doesn't show well that the label is cut from Sweet Blush. This is a color scheme that would not be my usual, but I wanted to make a card to cheer up my DD who sprained her ankle & I wanted to use the "sweet pea" stamp because I often call her that. Therefore, I needed the scheme that contained New Leaf.
I'm also going to enter this into the Moxie Fab World Olympics of Stamping challenge.
I don't think this is among the best cards I've ever made, but I like parts of it & its main purpose was to give my daughter something in her mailbox -- she loves to get mail. It also makes me feel like I'm doing something for her to help her through the not fun time of being on crutches.
Supplies: PTI ink, ribbon, buttons, cardstock, stamps. Versamark ink, Waltzingmouse frame stamp, puchased card base.
