Oh, How I Love Blue!


     Good morning!  Today I would like to share the card I made for my GS's recent birthday.  The little guy went and turned 4, already!  How is that possible?  You can see his recent school photo on my sidebar.

     I started with a base of medium blue card stock, a layer of black and then the panel I created with Distress Inks in the colors Iced Spruce, Broken China, and Faded Jeans.  My stamp set is from My Favorite Things and is called Circus Spectacular, and was designed by Lisa Johnson.  I just love these stamps and their vintage feel.  My large number is from SU!, and the panel was cut out using a Lil Inker stitched rectangle.  I added a few mini punched stars and blue enamel dot, plus some black cording at the corners.


     I would like to enter this in the Double" D" blue and white challenge.  I am using black as a neutral.

     Thanks so much for visiting, and have a great weekend!
