The Blues

The Blues is the theme along with the sketch for the A La Card Monkey this week, I have made this card using two different blues, Marina Mist, and Night of Navy. I used the beau chateau designer series paper, the greeting is from Loving Thoughts, and the other stamp set is Aviary. So happy that it isn't going to be retired yet. I love this stamp set, haven't used it a lot but do love it. Thanks for looking

Anything but a Card

It's the fifth Sunday in April so over at Come and Get It Challenges we have an Anything but a Card Challenge going on. For this challenge I made this Top Note Box, I used the paper from the Spring Vintage to cover the box, I cut out the butterfly in white and in Baja Breeze, and doubled it up to make it look like it's flying I stamped the butterfly with the Elements of Style set and colored them with Baja Breeze, So Saffron, and Pretty in Pink, I used  the Mother of Pearl Technique over the butterfly to give it a nice sheen, added some half pearls onto the butterfly and tied a 5/8 satin ribbon around the box added a tag to the top using the sentiment from On Your Birthday set.
Thanks for Looking.

Something Borrowed

Hi Everyone, Something Borrowed is the theme along with a sketch over at A La Card Monkey this week. I borrowed this stamp set called A New Little Someone from my friend Catherine, when I needed to make some baby cards. I stamped a couple of extra bunnies and bottles and such from the set, So they came in good use for challenge this week. I also made this card for a friend of mine, as she is expecting her 2nd grandchild in August and asked me to make the card for her, The greeting comes from the stamp set Petite Pairs. The paper is from my stash and the ribbon is 5/8 in Bashful Blue satin.
Thanks for looking.
