a little blue

Hi friends.  No, I'm not blue or depressed.  My card is blue.  I stamped like crazy this past week.  Each year has a week of challenges for fan club members only.  It's fun, a little bit crazy, and there are prizes, so I always try to participate.  Usually that means I'm playing catch up all week.  But somehow, this time I managed to keep up pretty much each day, and I actually finished on the day the final challenges were posted, a couple days before the deadline, which is Monday night. 

So I'm going to posting most of the cards I made for those challenges, but I'll just post one or two at a time.  But... not today!  Today I have a card I made for yesterday's inspiration challenge on SCS.  I chose this framed print as my inspiration.

I used an old SU set called because I care.  I stamped the hydrangea with tuxedo black memento ink and colored it with copic markers.  I added some white gel pen dots in teh flower centers.  Then I die cut it with a labels collection framelits die (SU/sizzix).  I added some faux stitching around the edge with a black marker.

My card base is ballet blue.  The sentiment is from impression obsession.

I added a strip of pattern paper and popped up the main image.  Done. 

After stamping all week, I needed a nice simple card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
