Blue Christmas

blue prechallenge

This week over at Flourishes it is time for our Release Challenge. The challenge is to create  a card with different shades of blue..I used the Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World for my inspiration.. I LOVE this picture.  It was my starting point  for the tones of blue I chose for my card. You can see the details here:  A Study In Blue


For my card I chose the Flourishes sets All That Glitters (for the Christmas ornaments) and Christmas Classic has this sentiment. .  I used the Flourishes Copic Collections Delphinium.
The pearl snowflakes are new to the Flourishes store.. I just love them.  You can't tell in this photo but they are a light blue color.  Very pretty.  Everything was stamped on Flourishes Classic White Cardstock. At the top of each ornament I added a Nail Head.  They are a new embellishment that Flourishes now carries. 

Check out what the rest of the Design Team Created:
