The colour Blue at Country View Challenges

Good Morning lovelies! How are you this new day? I hope you are well! Today there is a new challenge starting over at countryviewchallenges. The theme this month is - the colour Blue chosen by the lovely doreen. I am in full Christmas mode with this theme as I love a bit of blue for Christmas! Here's a card I made:


To make this card I started by stamping tim-holtz-mini-weathered-winter-stamps in versa mark and heat setting using opaque white wow powder. Then I used various blue DI ( faded jeans, salty ocean, chipped sapphire, stormy sky) to complete the background.


Next up was to cut words using the sizzix-thinlits-die-set-16pk---holiday-words-2-script-by-tim-holtz and add these to the front and finally to complete with a large blue bow using ribbon from Creative expressions.

I hope you feel inspired to join in with us - you may be lucky enough to win a £20 voucher to spend at Coutryview Crafts! Thats got to be worth having!!! 

Have a great day!

I would like to enter this into:
