[DYSU] Challenge #46 - Splash of Blue

Hello girls! It's almost the end of the week and I'm a few more days closer to my vacation! Yay! But today we have a challenge to use a Splash of Blue on your cards, paper projects or anything else...

I am using one of my favorite The Craft's Meow stamps from Nina B Designs and created a card that fits almost all occasions, be it for a wedding congrats, a quick hello, or a way to thank someone.

Simply Delightful
Stamps: (Nina B Designs - Simply Delightful) The Craft's Meow
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Kraft) Papertrey Ink; (Sweetbay) Memory Box Co
Ink: (Memento - London Fog, Tuxedo Black; Versamark) Tsukineko; (Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Antique Linen) Ranger
Embellishments: (Very Vintage Buttons - White; Saddle Stitch Ribbon - True Black) Papertrey Inks; (Embossing Powder - Ebony) Martha Stewart

It has a quirky vintage but also modern feel. Vintage modern! Does that even exist? I took some blue pattern paper from Memory Box Co and stamped the doily flower on it. I wanted one black one to stand out and decided to anchor it on the corner.

Simply Delightful

A nice elegant black embossing for the sentiment and a thick, elegant saddle stitch ribbon to make a nice statement. I also inked up the edges with some Antique Linen to soften the pattern paper.

I found this shimmery button in my mix of White buttons from my Very Vintage Papertrey stash, and it reminded me like mother of pearl. It's quite divine and decided it makes a great finishing touch. What do you think?

Don't forget to visit the other DYSU girls and see how they added their version of a splash of blue. Then come and play along, since prizes are are stake, as well as bragging rights :) Since it's time for holiday cards production, there is plenty of way to make this inspiration fit, such as blue snowflakes, blue skies, some non-traditional Christmas colors, name it!
