Shades of Blue card

The challenge this week over at Less is more is "Shades of Blue" For my card I used a Stampin Up stamped image inked in Faded Jean and embossed clear then coloured with Promarkers. The script is from Across the Miles set from The stamp Man inked in Faded Jean then spritzed with water before stamping for a watercolour effect. the ribbon is a pale blue sparkle mesh also found at The Stamp Man. I am entering this in The less is more Week 22 challenge "Shades of Blue"

Don't forget that you can enter for my 2 year blogiversary candy on the side bar up until Friday when I will post the next 2 for the following week. I will draw a winner for this week and post on Saturday. I am giving away 2 blog candies each week for the entire month of July to celebrate. for details and rules on how to enter please see the sidebar link.

Thanks for stopping in and have a wonderful day. Angela
