Blue Breezes at Rainbow Card Challenge

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

It's the first of the month, so that means it's time for a new challenge at Rainbow Card Challenge.  Our theme this month is Blue although your card does NOT have to be a breezy scene, if you don't want to!  What we do ask is that it is MONOCHROMATIC BLUE, but we don't mind a hint of another color if necessary.

And here's my card...

Card: Unbranded White blank, SU's Dapper Denim, and Clarity parchment
Groovi Plates: King George and Large Garden Bird with Branch
Tools and embellishments: Arteza Expert pencils and Clarity brads

#36 AG at Love to Craft Challenge Blog
#65 AG at Crafts Galore Encore Challenge
#20 Up In the Air at Papercraft Business Challenge

I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then.

  6. Another stunner! Your work is so meticulous and perfect. Wow! How long does it take you complete one of these beauties? Looks so labour intensive, but it's well worth it! Stunning!
    Have a wonderful evening, my friend.

    1. Lena, if I remember rightly, this one took about 2 and a half hours, though not all on the same day as the parchment needs to rest between embossing the white lines, piercing, and coloring before cutting. I've taken step by step pix of a project recently and will be blogging them later in the year. In the meantime you'll see some in my Creative Crew group on Fb

  7. Love your card! The front panel looks so pretty and delicate!
