 CASology  The clue POND did bring back fond memories. Summer time as teenagers my brother and sister and I would frequently swim in a neighbor's pond. We lived in an area surrounded by farms. So it was very rural, with no public transportation or swim clubs. So the pond is where we went to cool off and learn to swim and dive. They had the dock in the middle, so you had to swim out to dive in. I loved diving in but I hated getting out. The bottom felt so yucky.

With those memories in mind and a wonderful new collection of stamps from Gina K's Stamp TV I made this "Follow your Dreams" card. 

I was creating a card for Moxie Fab World -  Minty Fresh Challenge and I had paper left to play with and this is the result. I love this minty fresh green, not too yellow and not too blue, but a soothing shade in between. No coloring required. The dragonfly and heron were stamped on vellum then heat embossed and cut out. I think it's perfect for both challenges. What do you think?

I still have some paper left, wouldn't this color be great with chocolate brown?  I might be back with some more fresh and minty creations.
