Around The World On Wednesday March Blog Hop Color Challenge March Blues

Welcome to the Around the World On Wednesday March Blog Hop and this month it's all about the March Blues. We have been challenged to use Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Boho Blue, Misty Moonlight and Night of Navy to create our projects this month. My favorite color is blue, so I am very excited to play with these beautiful colors. Our Design Team will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you to create your own beautiful projects.
For my card, I wanted to combine all of the colors to create a fun and festive design that would also be a great masculine card. When I saw the sample for the Happy Little Things Bundle, I knew I wanted to CASE it using these beautiful colors. I did make a few adjustments to create my own version of this design and I love how it turned out. For the banners, I used a combination of designer series paper and embossed cardstock to create the banners behind the sentiment to add some texture and depth to the design. The sentiment has been colored using Stampin' Blends Markers in the colors to add a pop of color to the Basic White label. I must admit, as much as I love these blues, I don't think I would have thought to combine them all together but thanks to this challenge, I can now say, I love how they look on this card design.

The banners are the star of this card design and are the perfect way to add a variety of colors as well as a little texture. I embossed the cardstock banners using one of the new Fun Patterns Embossing Folders, which are a new addition to the Online Exclusives. It adds just a little bit of texture without being over the top. I alternated them with the striped designer series paper banners in each of the colors and attached them behind the Night of Navy Label. For the sentiment label, I stamped the sentiment with Night of Navy Classic ink and then colored in the letters using Dark Pool Party, Light Balmy Blue, Light Boho Blue, Light Misty Moonlight and Light Night of Navy Stampin' Blends Markers. I attached the sentiment label to the Night of Navy label and then attached it to the Basic White layer with Stampin' Dimensionals. I then layered it onto the Boho Blue layer and finally attached it to the Night of Navy card base. To complete the card design, I added several Misty Moonlight Gems for a touch of bling. As you can see, it's a great clean and simple card design that would work well for a variety of celebrations.
