Monochromatic Blues - Bloggers Challenge

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  Thanks to those who join in on last weeks Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge, I haven't made it around to comment on all the entries yet, but I do have the windows open and will be by later today to see your creations!

This weeks challenge is Monochromatic Blues - little did I realize that when I picked the challenge theme  I had little coordinating shades of Blue pattern paper!  Time to get creative with embossing folders and some scraps of My Minds Eye paper.


The Vanilla panel is embossed with a Texture Fades folder, sponging the edges lightly with Not Quite Navy.  The sentiment is from Verses Rubber Stamps (Embrace a Memory SY0521-E), stamped in NQN on Vanilla.  To embellish my card, I added parts of the Victorian Romance Flourish from Cheery Lynn Designs cut from NQN card stock, and some flower blossoms I created with Spellbinders Rose Creations Die and MME papers.

Details:
Stamps - Verses Rubber Stamps
Ink - Not Quite Navy
Card Stock - Vanilla, Not Quite Navy
Other - Sponge Dauber, Cheery Lynn Designs Victorian Romance Flourish, Pearls, Glue Dots, Dimensionals, Big Shot, Texture Fades Folder
