Blue Skies Are Coming Your Way

  blue2

Ahhh, one more day and it’s TGIF!!  Today’s card wasn’t going to happen.  When I saw Stacey’s Curtain Call colours for this week, I thought I would gracefully bow out, but then the “challenge” part got to me.  Hmmm…working with 2 blues always throws me off.  I am sooooo glad I was the December Guest Designer!! LOL  So I sat on it for a few days and then started playing around with some paper.  Here’s what I came up with.  I have been waiting to ink up this new PTI Mat Stack one stamp set for over a month and thought this would be the perfect time to do it.  I need a few more Get Well cards, so I looked through my Verve binders and found this perfect little gem from the set Blue Skies :)  Come back tomorrow as I show my sample for the new Viva La Verve challenge which starts tomorrow on the SCS forum :)  Have a fantastic day!!

Such a pretty elegant card. Love the scarlet grosgrain ribbon and the pretty felt butterfly. I need to break out these dies!

Is your mat stack the artichoke part? It sure is a beautiful card - and I'm sure the recipient will love it. That ribbonry is stunning as always!

Loving the pop of colour with the butterfly and ribbon, and good on you for going for the challenge. I opted out LOL! Have a great day :)

Looks fabulous with the blues! I always found Pacific Point hard to work with, but this is beautiful!Love the way you used the red too!

Ann said...

This sentiment is so perfect with the Mat Stack stamp! You did a beautiful job with these colors. So glad you joined us again!

Ok, you totally rocked the two blues. Two colors of the same shade tend to throw me off as well, unless it's a monochromatic card. I love the little jewels on the butterfly, and the blue buttons. So sweet and gorgeous. Someone feeling a little blue is going to love this!
