Feeling blue???

Good morning friends,

Having been away for a bit and with our weather back into heatwave conditions, it has been an effort this past week to get back to normal day to day things. At least I was able to get my card finished on time for today's new colour challenge at The Outlawz.

This week Laurian has challenged us to do a Monochrome card......I do find them a bit challenging, but managed to get this one done and quite happy with it.




Our sponsor this month is  All Dressed Up   

and the image I used can be found HERE




This is my card using the image A cuddle makes it all better''. It was coloured with Distress inkpads cut with a MFD and mounted onto a dark blue scolloped die cut.

I used paper paper from a 'no name' paper bloc.

3 different ribbons,..1 paper ribbon, 1 washi tape and a ribbon
3 little flower buttons, with the backs cut off.

The sentiment was attached with a flower brad.

I followed the sketch from Paper Craft Crew sketch #181

Beccy said...

I agree with you Ursula, the heat really does make it difficult to get and stay motivated. I've got my fingers crossed for a cool change for both your side of the world and mine.
Your card is absolutely beautiful... I love the different shades of blue and the way you have added the ribbon strips behind the image panel. You did a fabulous job coloured the sweet image... I love the cute sentiment too. Well done!
Cheers,
Beccy
