LIM: Shades of Blue

Well, this makes a change!  Sun on a weekend…?  Doesn’t that usually happen when it’s back to work time!!

We’ve had a lovely day in the garden.  The boys have now taken themselves off to nana’s house which his given me a chance to make my card for the Less is More challenge this week.  Once again, I feel inspired so this might be one of a few Smile.

Shades of Blue

I’ve used Marina Mist and Night of Navy blues from Stampin’ Up and the ‘Simply Said’ Stamp set.  The Happy Birthday is from ‘Party This Way’.

I started by embossing Night of Navy with Polka Dots and creating a trim with the my scallop punch.  I’ve stuck these flat on to the card front.  Then, on I’ve stamped and cut out a solid heart of Night of Navy (using whisper white card of course, it really is the best for stamping), and I’ve 3d’d this on to an outline heart.  I’ve added a stem using my sizzix embosslit and matted the image on to Marina Mist.  I’ve then 3d’d the image over to the right side of the card.  Finally, I’ve added the sentiment….simple, but then that’s the name of the game Smile.

So…best go and retrieve the boys.  I think nana probably needs a break by now Smile.
