Got The Blues?

No I don't mean the sad type of blues, but a card with blue as the primary colors. That's the challenge that was set by Sassy Jeni on the Sassy Cheryls Challenge Blog this week.

I'm in the midst of an OWH cardmaking frenzy(you'll see those on my SMT post this week), but I took time out this afternoon to create my challenge card along with a few extras to go in my OWH box.

I'm having the best time creating all the card shapes in my Silhouette Design Software, filling the shapes with my digital papers, and then letting the Cameo do the hard part of cutting everything out. It sure speeds things up, and I'm actually able to save paper.

For this week's challenge, I've chosen the Sassy Cheryl image I Love You This Much. I love this image, because it always reminds me of one of my nephews. He was saying this to my mother, his Granny. I've colored her with Copics.

The papers I've used are from the Cocoa Paisley Damask Collection from Dotted Daisy. The frame and the flower shapes were freebies from Shery K Designs. I again used the print and cut features of the Cameo to cut them out.

Thanks for stopping by.
