Feeling the Blues
I'm killing 4 birds with one stone with this card! It's monochromatic for Sankari's Get Your Diva On challenge and it's mostly blue for the Free 4 All challenge on SCS. It also uses Tosh's great sketch for week 3 of the September's Viva la Verve challenges! There's also a NEW challenge on the block and that's the Dolce Stamps and Cards Thursday Challenge! Heather is asking us to create a distressed card. I went with papers from MME's Stella & Rose "Hattie" collection and also used PTI's vintage cream CS. After I had it all together, I realized I forgot to sponge the tag...DRAT! I will have to add that later (yes...Freud has a name for people like me - lol!). The yummy lace trim is also from MME...a find on my last shopping trip to Scrapdoodles. The flower is one of MFT's newest Die-namics and has endless possibilities! The tabs were made using SU's word window punch. That's it from me on this glorious fall day! I've really enjoyed my day off and hope it's been a good day for you as well!
