I'm So Blue

Please don't let that title fool you.  I'm not sad (it's not that kind of "blue"); but rather, I fell in love with a blue color combination I saw over on Nichole Heady's Papertrey Ink Blog, and I knew that I just had to make something using that same gorgeous color combination,  When you see Nichole's original card, you will know just what I mean......it's lovely!
I had to work with what I had (as I'm sure you can all relate), so my card isn't exactly like Nichole's.  But I was definitely drawn to her amazing color combination.  Rather than using stamps as she did, I had to use die-cuts to create my flowers.  I also loved how Nichole had black on her card base, with small accents of black on the bright flowers and white background.  I layered the wool felt flowers and used black buttons for the floral centers, and tied Ivory Button String in the middle.

Papertrey Ink - Create Along With Us:  I was inspired by Nichole Heady's Card (you will definitely want to take a peek).  I loved her color combination, black base and black accents, which completely inspired me on this card.  While I didn't have the PTI floral stamps Nichole used, I recreated the color combination the best I could using wool felt, PTI floral dies, and PTI leave dies.  I also drew my lines around the stamped sentiment to (somewhat) recreate the fabulous new sentiment frames in this month's new release at PTI.

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says "Something New", so I used some of my brand new wool felt, and a new color combination.

I really appreciate your visit to my blog.  Have a wonderful week.

Blessings to you all,
Karen
