Less is More...Aqua

Congratulations, Less is More...as you celebrate the first year of challenges!!  Less is More makes my heart happy....yes, IT ROCKS!!!
The challenge at Less is More this week  is a color challenge...to use Aqua.  Aqua...aqua...well, I knew it was blue...my birthstone is Aqua-marine...but with all the blue ink and paper I have, I couldn't decide which would be considered closest to Aqua.  So...I did what I always do when I don't know something...I google it!  On Wikipedia, it even showed a color strip of aqua...and the color it looked closest to , of my stash, was Stampin Up Pool Party.  The stamped color is much darker than the paper, but I made a card using a little of both:
Used stamps by Papertrey Ink(Stitches and Swirls and Birthday Basics)...stamped randomly then cut out a rectangle from my stamped paper, layered, added ribbon and popped up.  Gotta run...have to get to Sam's Club to get a tire repaired that's going flat!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
