Celebrate the Occasion: Challenge #23 - Blue and White

Celebrate the Occasion begins another great challenge today, and I'm eager for you to play along -- especially since it's my first week on the design team!  Challenge #23 is to make a project for any occasion -- just as long as you use only blue and white.

In case you haven't noticed, I don't use a lot of blue in my projects.  It's not that I don't like blue -- I just like warm colors like pink and orange and red more.  So I went out of my comfort zone for this card:

Card Details:
  • Card Base - DCWV Brights (A2)
  • Papers - patterned and distressed papers by My Mind's Eye: Bohemia; cardstock from scraps
  • Cricut Cuts - flower from Florals Embellished, page 23; tag is <dream> from Playtime
  • Other - blue satin ribbon from Hobby Lobby, sentiment stamp by The Paper Studio; edges inked with sky blue Le Plume II marker

My parents celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary on Sunday, so I mailed this card to them last week.  Nine more years until I get to plan a huge celebration for them!

Now it's your turn.  Visit Celebrate the Occasion and share your blue and white creations!  The challenge runs through Sunday, July 31.

    I love your card. You totally rocked that cartridge. I have a lot of problems with
    Florals Embellished. I dont pick good colors and
    I cant seem to be able build the layers.
    Every so often I try it. Your card is beautiful.
