Core'dinations July Challenge

It's time for another Core'dinations challenge. (BTW, I was the co-winner of last month's challenge! Yay, me! lol

This month's challenge is to create a layout or card using a specific color combo.
Here is the inspiration:

and the following is my take...

I actually dusted off my Fiskars Shape Boss (circa 2001) to emboss the border of the layout. I used a journaling template to emboss my stitch lines for the banner.

Products used:

Whitewash Wicker Chair
Whitewash Barn Siding
Vintage Collection Sun Coral
Core Color Rivulet
Vintage collection (blue, I can't find the specific name)
Patterned paper: Crate Paper Emma's Shop Quilts
Alphas: Thickers Dots
Sassafras Scripts
My Mind's Eye Lime Twist
Twine: The Twinery

These pics are from two years ago and I could never get motivated to scrap them. Along came this challenge which was absolutely PERFECT and gave me the scrappy jumpstart I needed. Hop on over to the Core'dinations blog and give this fun challenge a try!
