Blue on Blue

Have taken the time to take on a couple of new challenges. Inspiration come from the list of challenges that are posted on my desk, Billy comments on all the post a notes, but it does help me to check out the daily challenges. This week there was lots of inspiration, and that makes it easy for me to set down and create a card.

The sketch on Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge turned on the light in my small brain, and I couldn't wait to give this one a try.

Later on in the week Gingersnap Creations offered up the challenge of monochromatic. The cards the ladies on the design team are all wonderful. These ladies are such an inspiration for me, each one is so supportive. The idea of doing a card in monochromatic was different for me, but that is why I love this group so much. These ladies always come up with new and fun ideas that push us to take on challenges that we otherwise would not.

The stamps that were used were from Inkadinkado, a Christmas set that was purchased at Michaels. This set has 14 different stamps, have used it on some of my other creations, and have some other projects that will be featured here in the next couple of days.

Wanted to add a little dimension to the card, so dimensionals were added to the large snowflake, (notice a pattern with my cards, last card had dimensionals, now this one.) Loved the small snowflake so much that I got carried away and stamped a couple on the envelope. The circles were made with my trusty cutting system.

Thanks for the inspiration and have a crafty day.
