BLUE - Just Add Ink 39

I finally had the opportunity to participate in a challenge.  I'm so excited.  Its been ages and I'm really happy with how this one turned out.  Over at Just Add Ink, they issued a challenge to use the colour BLUE.  I went with a monochromatic scheme plus white for my cards.  I was able to make a set of four cards and card holder.  I used some retired DSP from a few years ago (yikes).  I seem to have a lot of retired DSP, which I'm in the process of using.  I also used a retired stamp set, Take Three.  Its one that I have only used a few times, as I never really found a good card for it.  This time the stamp set was the perfect choice.

Here are the pictures

Unfortunately the pictures aren't very good.  I haven't found the perfect spot for placing my projects for portraits.  Once my craft room is fully organized and clean (like that will ever happen), I'm hoping to have a shelf that I can display my projects.  
What you can't see in the picture, is that I used the same embossing folder (I can't remember which one and I don't have my catalogue on hand) on each card.  The colors are Baja Breeze  (so happy its back) and Not Quite Navy (glad they kept it).  I also used silver brads and Whisper White 1/4" grosgrain ribbon.  I used a few different punches as embellishments on the cards.  
The card holder is made out one sheet of dsp.  I used a scrap of dsp (from the same package) to decorate the front.  

I love make sets of cards that coordinate.  I'm hoping I can do the same for all my Christmas cards.

Happy Fall and take care,
