Blog Banner Inspired

This week's challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is "Toot your own horn"  they want you to use your blog banner as inspiration.  How FUN is that?  I enlisted the help of this week's Retro Sketch for the layout of my card and this is what I came up with....



All of the supplies I used are from Stampin Up (except for the white cardstock which is from PTI - IMO that is the BEST white CS).  I used the SU My Digital Studio software to create my blog banner so I thought it was only right to use SU supplies for my card.  The color scheme on this card is actually the same color scheme I have in my bedroom.

I used the Gallon, Quart, Pint color concept from Julie Day's post for this same challenge.  It reminded me about the post I read on the Moxie Fab World blog about this concept a few weeks ago.  You can read the post HERE.

My gallon color is white, my quart is Baja Breeze and my pint is chocolate chip.
