NAC #6

I hope this week finds all of you in good spirits and in good health.  The ladies over @ Nacho Average Challenge, have a color challenge this week.  I have to admit, this color combo was a bit of a struggle for me.  These are not my 'go-to' colors.  But hey, it's a challenge, right?

This graphic didn't copy too well.  The colors are Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade and Not Quite Navy.  And here is what I created:

The card base is Not Quite Navy.  I used a panel of textured very vanilla card stock.  I made my mini envelope from a floral note envelope.  I stamped a flourish in NQN and the random splatters in LL classic inks.  The 'get well wishes' banner is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I stamped it in Early Espresso classic ink and hand cut the strip.  The floral image is colored with markers and I used an oval punch to create the center of the polka dot label.  I tied some linen thread around the main panel piece.  Added some butterflies, and stamped the post mark in basic black classic ink.  
Thank you for stopping by.  Now, lets see what you create!  Don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team blogs to see what they have created.  I hope you find some inspiration, and play along with us.
