Patchwork Card


This is turning out to be a blue week in more ways than one!! Oooer...I'd better clarify that quickly!! LOL!
Well, not only have I been considering blue cards for the latest Less is More Challenge, work is also a bit blue this week as all my girl friends are ill and working at home!! *sob* .  Makes for a very dull week at work!!

Anyhow....I've had a go at a patchwork card today. 

I've used squares of DSP papers Baja Breeze, Marina Mist and Tempting Turquoise.  I've inked the edges with Night of Navy and stuck them to the front of 15cm square card.  I've added a greeting (from Stampin' Up's Party This Way) and finally embellished it with a Daisy cut using the Flowers, Daisies #2 die from Stampin' Up!  This is available in the Mini catalogue until September.

So it is very blue, and (IMHO) very simple.  I'm entering this in the following challenges:
The Paper Shelter (Anything Goes)
2 Sisters Challenge Blog (Birthdays)
Crafts & Me (Birthdays)
Less is More (Shades of Blue - although after a recent comment, I'm thinking this is probably NAS* and not CAS)

Hope to see you tomorrow!

*Nice and Simple
