Shades of blue.

Is the theme over at the Sarah Hurley Challenge Blog this month, and I am always amazed at how many different creations we come up with for a theme, but especially when it is a monochrome one. 

I chose to make a card using different blue papers, and made my theme the sky.  I took the gingham paper from Oz, and made it my base layer. Used some gorgeous polka dot papers from Secret Rose Garden and die cut them to be wee hot air balloons, this is one of my favourite dies as it makes me think of floating away to Oz. My sentiment “Enjoy the Journey” comes from the Expedition kit.  I also managed to play with this months A Few of My Favourite Things Kit, which is full of gorgeous cloudy papers, bright coloured papers, journalling cards and stamps. I used one of the stamps on my cloud die cut, and I love the result.
