Dynamic Duos - Monochromatic Blues

It's the fourth week of Dynamic Duos Color Challenges and the fourth week of the month means "monochromatic".  This month we are focusing on blues with Marina Mist and Bashful Blue.

This is such a peaceful color combo, I chose to make a get well card featuring a simple little window scene...

Hi Kim, I really love that window die and I love the sky scene you've created. Also love that striped IP - just got mine yesterday. Looks like wainscoting on your creation. It's wonderful!
