Blue and Silver

Blue and Silver - Today's challenge at Creative Card Crew is to use blue and silver only. I thought it was going to be an easy challenge, but when it came time to execute, it was difficult.

No designer papers on this one. I stacked the blue paper then stamped a poinsettia (Stampabilities) all over it, using SU Illuminate ink. I wasn't sure how well the ink would photograph, but it did great.

My lighter paper is silver vellum.

 My poinsettia is SB cut, shaped and stacked. For the center, I used a Viva Decor pearl pen. This one is silver chrome. You can get it from our sponsor, Simon Says Stamp. They have a great variety of products. Our winner will get a $20 gift voucher to their store. Check them out, so that if you win, you can have your list ready to go.

 My scalloped border is a SU edgelit. It has a matching embossing folder that goes with it. I have not tried yet, but I know that I will like it.

My sentiment is also SU. It is their tiny words set. The 2 punches that I used are also SU. I added to more pearls made with my blue Viva Decor pearl pen.

Some silver ribbon complied my card.
