Goodbye Certainly Celery and Bashful Blue!

When these two colors were first introduced into the Stampin' Up! color pallet I absolutely loved them and used them all the time.  But as other colors were brought in, these two got used less and less. So when the Color Refresh was recently announced, I wasn't TOO disappointed to see them go. I was glad to see a challenge at Pals Paper Arts using Bashful Blue and Certainly Celery so I can use up some of my stash that is just sitting here collecting dust. :) I paired the color combination with the challenge at The Friday Mashup, which is to make a Double Z Fold card with an umbrella. 
My first thought was to make a baby card but I don't know anyone expecting a baby boy, nor do I like to have cards sitting around that I don't think I will use for a while, so I decided to just do a general "Thinking of You" card.  I thought these colors went great with the umbrella theme!

The Certainly Celery cardstock is a band that slides over the top. When it is removed the inside looks like this:
I don't usually make cards with different folds but I had a lot of fun with this one!  I am thinking that I might do some fun fold cards at my next Stamp Camp!

Stamp Set: Rain or Shine, Oh Hello
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Marina Mist
Tools: Oval Framelits, Edgelits, Chevron Embossing Folder, Clouds Embossing Folder, Piercing Pack, tool and mat

Yay, I was a Glamette at The Friday Mashup!
