The Blues

It's been a sunny, glorious holiday weekend here and I haven't made a card in over 2 days! We visited my parents and some friends and I saw "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" with Judi Dench and Maggie Smith and Bill Nighy, and Imelda Staunton and Tom Wilkinson - it's really a great movie with terrific acting from an outstanding cast.

I'm full of ideas and inspiration for tomorrow, but for today, here's a card that I made a while ago:


This is a stamp from Ditto that I got at Michael's (the one stamp has all nine 'flowers' on it). I also have the same stamp where the flowers are outlined rather than solid. I stamped in Versafine Onyx  and embossed with iridescent embossing powder before adding the Doodlebug gems (I'm running out of these - they are my favourite because of their bright colours and hemispheric shape!)

ooooh, this is so pret-ty!!! Love all the blues and the shimmer. And how cool that you used clear gems on the top.

hahaha ... you had me laughing out loud this morning when I read about your body relaxing with the non-random card ... I hear you, I'm usually much more relaxed around neatness and order. I need to force myself to be random : )

Great card, great comment!
