Challenge time again at The House

The new Designer’s Choice Challenge over at 
The House that Stamps Built is a colour challenge 
Use two or more shades of Blue.

I even named my card for this challenge - Blue Blue my card is Blue.

Here is what I came up with.

The card base is white and topped with dark blue cs and I distressed the edges. I followed with a lighter  blue and embossed it with CB Textile folder. I also sanded the surface to bring out the white then distressed and tore a few edges. 
I then layered the same dark blue paper, distressed the edges and curled one corner. The white cs on top has been inked in a very light blue with SU Vintage Vogue stamp set.
I stamped the small flowers in a dark blue on the white cs and cut out a further 2 the same and popped them on top.
Finished off with some sprigs from my MS punch and added a larger lighter blue flower which has dots of liquid pearls and a touch of glitter around the centre.
Added a small piece of light blue ribbon and a tiny sentiment from Gina K's stamp set Stippled Nature.

This is a closer view of the light blue flower which show the glitter a little more clearly. 


Since this will be my last posting till the New Year I would like to wish all my blogger friend a 
Very Merry &  Safe Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Thanks so much for all your comments throughout the year. 
They are so encouraging and appreciated. Ina.
