Hello friends!  Do not adjust your monitor... there really is that much blue on this card - LOL! If you read down below you'll see why I chose to use blue. 

I LOVED the sketch this week from MOJO Monday 250 with all its wonderful layered elements and just had to use it for this card.  I did take a couple small liberties with the sketch by adding a couple extra elements - top flower and extra flower on side to help balance out the blues used and bring in the border a bit.  I used the Bitty Banners Framelits to make two banners and then snipped them in half for my four flags at the bottom.  Those little flags at the bottom were not easy to line up - I got that last one a bit off (in fact as I look at this everything is a bit too far to the right -  so just don't look too hard and you won't notice - wink,wink).

There is a newer challenge called Addicted to Stamps (the name alone made me want to check it out :o) ). I participated in their very first challenge and the challenge this week Addicted to Stamps {BLUE} Challenge #1 is to make a creation using BLUE - so I complied and used LOTS of different blues :o) - I used pacific point, midnight muse, not quite navy, night of navy and island indigo.  However, I missed the deadline for this challenge due to an incorrect time zone conversion on my part.  It said by Tuesday 11:59pm so I thought I was ahead of the deadline.  I missed the part about AEST for the time zone.  Have to be more careful next time.

Thanks so much for stopping by to visit - I'm sure glad that you did! Hope you saw something that inspired you today! Hugs! 

Supplies (all from Stampin Up!): Cardstock - Pacific Point, Whisper White, and Midnight Muse.  DSP - International Bazaar (new) and Patterns Designers Series Paper Stack (striped navy, regals collection). Sentiment stamp is from Pursuit of Happiness.  Punches used - Boho Blossom (bright blue flowers), scallop circle punch (dark blue) and 2 1/2" circle punch (sentiment).  Sizzix Framelits - Bitty Banners (small flags at the bottom).   I layered a paper daisy on top of the scallop circle punch and added a designer printed brad (island indigo) to the middle.


  1. You did a beautiful job with this sketch. Love the extra flowers you added!

  2. Love the colors! Great job on the sketch!

  3. Its wonderful, Danielle. What a shame you missed the deadline at ATS. I love this sketch and as you know, entered my own interpretation. Don't know about you, but I was suffering from craft fatigue when I was finished lol. Our new challenge is CAS, so don't forget to check it out xx


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. It makes my day happier! Hugs!
