When I first saw the color combination that Stampin' Up! was promoting as "retro", I gotta be honest, I didn't like it much. And it was everywhere -- in all their new products. Then I saw a card made by Mary Fish using them, and I really liked her card. So I decided to try it. She had used Very Vanilla instead of Whisper White card stock and I realized that made all the difference -- that the blue and orange combined weren't so harsh together because the Very Vanilla buffered their intensity. So, here is the card that I cased and tweaked from Mary. I learned a lesson on creativity from this -- don't jump to conclusions from a first glance!
