Addicted To Blue

It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps and this week the challenge is 'Addicted to Blue' - that means creating a card with the predominant colour of Blue.
My card has been made using Butterfly Prints (Stampin' Up) and various shades of blue - take a look


I really love the hound's tooth pattern of this stamp and it looks great in the blue don't you think? My colours are Bashful Blue, Taken with Teal and Pacific Point. Each stamped butterfly has been stamped and cut out and then layered on to a punched butterfly in the same colour blue. The sentiment has been stamped in Bashful Blue.
My fellow team mates have made some lovely cards this week so please do hop over to the blog and take a look - you never know you might just want to join in!
Thanks for looking - see you soon - Jacqueline xx

Love the layering here and the lovely use of different shades of blue. How things are a little better at home and sending you lots of positive thoughts.
    Take care,

  7. This is such a great way to showcase 'blue' Jacqueline. As soon as I saw your card I thought 'now why didn't I think to do that'. Probably lucky I didn't really lol.

    Love the graduated blues of your butterflies. x
