Am I blue?

Am I blue?  No I am just digging monochromatic all of a sudden.  I love color and this seems to be a fun way for me to express what I'm into that day.  Also I really wanted to use some of the new embellishments I got from Hero Arts. They are all blue so this worked out well.

Some of the supplies I used were the Envelope Pattern background stamp and the Hello Flower stamp from Hero Arts, Mixed Sea Buttons by Hero Arts, Mixed Sea Gems by Hero Arts, Bahama Blue ink by Momento  (on the flower stamp), Distress Ink in Tumbled Glass by Ranger (on the envelope background on the main body of the card, Bakers Twine, adhesive by Tombow  and some pop dots. The card stock, the body of the card is made of, is by Bazzil. The other colors were all scraps. Yay scraps!!

There was a little bit of measuring with this one in order to create the ribbon shaped bottom on the blue strip. It was pretty quick and easy to measure the center point and then cut away a triangle shape.  Then I lined up the blue piece on top and just cut away the bottom with my craft knife.  Super simple. 

I love the soft and subtle effect.  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek.  :-)
