Monochromatic Blues!

I have had company this weekend and after my sister left, I went into my craft room to clean it up!  Well I moved a couple of things and then remember, Lisa's blues!  Since I had a few free inches of space, Bloggers Challenge won with the Monochromatic Blues!  Stampin Up's French Script was stamped in a shade of blue on some of Tim Holtz blue lined paper!  The Stipple Butterfly, also Stampin Up, was then ink in blue, stamped on another TH subtle background blue prints and then clear embossed.  I added a little extra color here and there, in blue of course.  I then stamped this again to create the body, which was cut out to give an extra layer.  Some decorative threads were used to tie the paper layers!  This was fun and one of my more quicker cards!  Shaded all edges in blue!  Come on over and show off your blues! 

Just have to share this lovely card I received from my blogging friend, Lynne of Adorn and now  DT sister for Fashionable Stamping Challenges.  Is this gorgeous or what?  She wanted to send me a thank you for a lovely pink bowl I won from Cindy Adkins.  I knew this bowl had to find Lynne and Cindy was so sweet to make it happen!  Thank you again, Lynne!  I love this, but more the gesture of friendship!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  Tomorrow is Labor Day and I am going to BBQ!

Terry
I love that we are DT sisters. From my heart, it is an honour to be on a DT with someone who bursts with creativity as you do.
The blue works so well on this card. There is a real elegance to it but a card that would be perfect for a man or woman. Love the script.
Wishes
Lynne
