Repeat Impressions' Color Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

We are changing things up at bit at the Repeat Impressions' Blog, The House that Stamps Built!
In the past, we've alternated a Designer's Choice Challenge, with a Sketch Challenge each Wednesday. This year, we will try incorporating some color challenges, photo inspiration challenges, etc., along with Wendy's amazing sketches.  Today, we are excited to bring you our first color challenge:

For my card today, I chose a fun shade of blue!
The stamp that I used is Repeat Impressions' 2001-M, Peaceful Observation.

I stamped image on both blue, and white cardstock with VersaMark ink, then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.  
The sentiment was stamped with blue ink
The cat was fussy cut from the white cardstock, and adhered onto the blue cardstock.  
(This image is fun, as it includes the window, cat, and snowflakes, all in one!)
The blue panel was trimmed to fit inside the silver frame on a thank you note that we'd received a few days ago.
The blue panel was adhered to white, then black cardstock, (mats were created with my Perfect Papercrafting mini rulers - see sidebar for details) and then to card front.
Dotted the snowflakes with white chalkboard marker to add a bit of dimension.

My fellow Rock Stars have created some beautiful cards with this color combination - check them out!!!
