Blue Monday

No, I'm not sad... on the contrary, I'm feeling pretty good this morning. Even if it is a Monday... ;) I've just got a very blue card to share and true blues aren't a color that I use a whole lot of... especially when coloring. But something about this little pixie was just calling out for it. So I grabbed up these Twig papers because not only is there a lot of blue in them but they also have a very woodsy/natural vibe that I liked for her. And yeah for pulling out the Cuttlebug! I so don't utilize it enough but it always adds such a cool touch to a card. All in all I think this card was just an excuse to use some of my more neglected tools, papers and colors. LOL Okey dokey, it's hair and makeup time once again... have a good one my friends! Supply list: cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It paper- Little Yellow Bicycle (Twig) stamps- Stamping Bella (Pixie set), Hero Arts (sentiment) ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox dark brown Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing plate Fiskars border punch Making Memories flower button twine ribbon Jenni Bowlin stick pin Little Yellow Bicycle leaf stick pin Sharpie white marker Copic markers: skin- E000, E00, E11, R00, R20 hair- E74, E77, E79, E49 clothes- B34, B37, B39, BG000, 0

That is such a sweet card Amy! Love the little image and that flower with the blue ribbon! Blue is my favourite colour, though I rarely use it on cards. For some reason I tend to use a lot of pink, and I don't even like pink lol!

Love this - fabulous earthy colors and a fun image. I use my CB all the time - I actually think I need a new one as it's getting a bit worn.
