As it's the 200th palette what about some fun. Leave a comment and on Sunday July 24, I'll randomly pick someone who get this prize from me: 

And now for this week's palette. I loved those colours from the start and I decided to make a layout and a card:
 
I love that blue patterned paper and really wanted to use it. I just love that little camera stamp and decided it would be the centre piece of my card. I heat embossed it to give it some shine. Next I added a sentiment stamp from Heroarts and to get all the colours from the palette on there I added two light blue brads.

And now my layout and it must be one of my favourites. 
When I created this layout I had different patterned papers lying on my scrap table. And in the end I didn't use them at all. I took out my Kesi'art stamps (French Brand) and stamp the circles with versafine Deep lagoon and sprinkled transparent embossing powder over it. I then heat embossed it. It gives it a nice shiny finish. The leaves I just stamped on and added some stickles. It's been a while since I used those. I added my photo, a border sticker, a rub-on from Lilybee and a stamp with the title. To finish it off I added some brads (lighter blue) and drew a border around my photo. Not a lot on my layout but that's how I like my layouts.

Thanks for stopping by and have fun with the blog hop.

Here's the full list
