365 Cards - #185 - Feeling Blue

Feeling Blue is the challenge over at 365 Cards today and we had to use three shades of blue on our card. I think I have used about six shades of blue on mine lol so I've got the challenge covered hehehe. I didn't make my card last night as I usually do because I went to bed really early (unusual for me) and woke up at 6am thinking about my card. . . tragic for sure!!!! How many of us dream about cardmaking and what we are going to be putting together on our next card, project etc? I reckon I'm not on my own here girls and possibly gents lol. I quite often dream about what I will do on my next card as if I have nothing better to dream about at night hey?


Okay enough is enough now back to the card. I used a white Versa Magic on the large star image and then dusted it with Perfect Pearls in an aqua blue and then stamped over the top but slightly lower in SU Not Quite Navy. You can see the shimmery image behind the main image there in the pic. I loved how this turned out. The designer paper is from Crate Paper (one of my fav companies) and it has rock star images all over it, it is great imagery. Anyone who wants to be in the spotlight be it a rock star or movie star would be able to receive this card as it is all about making ones dreams come true isn't it? That's it for me this morning going to have breakfast now.
In the meantime. . .
Walk about your day with beauty.

Supplies: SU Not Quite Navy and Baja Breeze (lovely colour) cardstock and stamp pads. SU In The Stars (deceased) stamp set. Crate Paper designer paper. Ranger Perfect Pearls. SU Filagree brad. Flowers from my stash. SU Word Window punch.
