C4C119 I'm seeing BLUE!!!

Happy weekend everyone!

Hope you’ll have a nice relaxing one planned. We’ll be busy with Sarah’s first pageant this year. It’s a Pink Ribbon Pageant in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. A cause that is dear to my heart. I’ll post some photos this week so you can see her new dress and I can update you on how well she has done!!!

Anyway, I had a chance to stamp for this week’s Crazy 4 Challenges -C4C119 theme. Joanne has challenged us to create a card/project with *MONOCHROMATIC IN BLUES*.

Here is my take on it…….

I decided to dig out one of my retired Stampin’ Up Hostess Set called Because I Care. I inked it in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ BV000, B0000, B00, B93, B97, YG11 and G21. The image was placed onto a Circled Spellbinder Die and a Doily. The DP in the background is from the Pacific Point DP Collection and I decided to add some scoring on top and added the new PTI Filigree Border on the bottom. The Enchanted Evening Ribbon is also from PTI and I topped it off with a matching Button as well as some White Scrapper’s Floss. At last I added the Silver Pearls...voila!

Please make sure to check out the rest of the *Crazies* for their  ideas ~ FrancesBarbaraCindy,
Have a fabulous week and I'll see you again on Tuesday!!!

                                                                   Hugs, ~Silke~
