A li’l bit of pretty…in blue :)

I guess pretty doesn’t just have to be pink….lol I’ve been using a LOT of blue just lately (Think it’s probably cos iam in Christmas mode LOL)

Anyhows heres a li’l ole card i whipped up based  on the WALTZING MOUSE SKETCH . I always try and do the wmsc and everytime iam either too late in finishing me creation or just to late in posting it Sad smile I was determined to not let this one pass me by Smile I teamed the sketch with the challenge over at OUR CREATIVE CORNER which is ‘Not big on pink’, so ya gotta create something using blue with just a dash of pink and add something metal.

Combining both challenges here us what i came up with.

I used the dotty stamp from the WM ‘OFFBEAT BACKGROUNDS’ set (LOVE IT) who need dotty paper when ya can have a dotty stamp like this Smile

I wasn’t sure if i wanted seam binding or lace on me card! In the end i went with both (as ya do) lol  Me ‘bit of pink’ is me butterfly cameo thingy Smileand me metal pin. I used a sentiment from ‘sewing box hugs’

I kept the inside simple with some stitching and a lovely sentiment, again from the WM ‘Sewing box hugs’ set.

I totally understand about just missing the deadline to participate in challenges. I'll get everything on my blog and then realize I didn't post on the challenge.

The blue and the lace are such a dreamy combination. I so agree about the spotty background, it's a good'un. Totally shabby-licious!
