Blue cards


Couldn't come up with a more imaginative title I'm afraid, but these are just a couple of blue cards I made today!

This first one is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #137 for the sketch, Stampin' Royalty's Challenge #143 to use your big shot/die cuts and for Create with Connie and Mary's Challenge #220 to use these colours. I wanted to make a quick little butterfly card with this gorgeous sentiment from a retiring hostess set. Our new Stampin' Up catalogue goes live on Monday and I'm trying to write a reasonable wish list for my first order (and by reasonable I mean about £150 worth not the £1000 I usually want to spend with a new catalogue!).


And here's my card anyway.

My next card is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #1 for October and CC394 to use Pacific Point  Not Quite Navy and Sahara Sand. I was stuck with this sketch and colour combo for a while, although I knew I wanted to do them together, then came up with this teenage boy inspiration!

And that's all from this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
