CAS 50 Challenge: Using Teal

I made this card for the Clean and Simple (CAS) Challenge #50 at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge consists of using teal, white and an additional color in a card. While at the mall yesterday, I saw some teal, white and black dresses. I immediately knew that I wanted to use that color combo in my card. I stamped the butterfly (CTMH Butterfly Kisses) with Versamark and embossed it with black embossing powder. I colored it with a SU! Bermuda Bay marker. Then I added some details with an Uniball Signo white pen. The butterfly is placed on a PTI white cardstock square stamped with the Hero Arts Woodgrain Background stamp. I matted it with SU! Bermuda Bay and black cardstock. The patterned paper is from PTI Polkadot Basics pad (I love it!). The decorative strip was punched using the new SU! scallop punch. I wrapped PTI satin ribbon around the strip. The sentiment (CTMH) was stamped in CTMH Ocean. It means "Thinking of you" in spanish.
When I fall in love with a SU! In-Color, I try to find a similar color in another company. I found that SU! Bermuda Bay is very similar to CTMH Ocean. The good thing is that I am not left with "orphan" products (eg. ribbon, cardstock, etc) when the color is discontinued at the end of the SU! year at the end of June. Other similar colors are PTI Blush and SU! Pink Piroutte. I still have not found an adequate substitution  for SU! Baja Breeze, which is sad since I loved that color.
