The House That Stamps Built--Anything Goes

Hello, All, and welcome to another What If Wednesday at The House That Stamps Built blog.  This week our challenge is Anything Goes!  Yeay!!  I know everyone likes those.  Today I have a serene card that I made as a sympathy card for some friends who just lost their mother/mother-in-law.  As we live in Rhode Island, I thought this ocean view had a nice calming feel to it.
 Here is the inside with this beautiful sentiment from Repeat Impressions:
I also stamped the main image again in a pale gray and I love how the sentiment overlays it and ties everything together.  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to get the full details and see the rest of the projects from the DT.  Then get inky and play along; there is a $25 gift certificate up for grabs!  And don't forget, if you like any of the stamps I used today, I have a 10% off code on the left hand side of my blog.

Challenges:
As You Like It Challenge--favorite single color and why (my all time favorite color is blue, right now I'm into the turquoise shades.  I'm not sure why I love it so much, but I think part of it is the calm feeling of it.  I'm a quiet introvert and like things nice and calm)
