Shades of blue

I'm going to try & enter some of the lovely challenges that are out there in blog land. I love the Less is More blog & their challenge this week is for a clean & simple designs in shades of blue. So I went back to my first Stampin' Up hostess gift of the Punch Potpourri stamp set & this is what I came up with ...
I scored 2 lines with my paper trimmer to define the centre panel. I then masked the top & bottom parts of the card & stamped the flowers in Pacific Point, Marina Mist & Night of Navy. I must give a shout out to Vicky as I saw the idea for the scored lines on her blog. The sentiment is from the Just Believe stamp set.
I seem to have a bit of an obsession with the colour blue at the moment, so watch this space for more 'blue' cards :)

Thanks for popping by x
