Shades of blue

It's such a relief to have a new PC after the death of my laptop, I've really missed blogging and hoping. Great to be back and to be able to join in with the latest challenge over at Less is More which to is use shades of blue. Here's mine:


I've made a simple card using up some blue scraps (now that my scraps are all perfectly organised!) and the Word Window Punch to create my border. Then the Engraved Greetings sentiment stamped in Night Of Navy with a few highlights using a Tempting Turquoise marker.

Had to nip out to the boys playhouse to get a photo in the light!
