Shades of Blue Less Is More Challenge

This week at "Less Is More" the challenge is "shades of blue"....
For my first card I stamped with SU Marina Mist and the rose with Night of Navy.......
the butterfly was punched, then mounted on sticky back paper and I applied glitter....
messy, but effective!!
I actually saw a card very similar in a store and liked the simplicity of it. 

My second card is made from "guess what"....
give up?
I punched a label on painters color chips I picked up from a store.......
simply embossed each one and a matching plain strip across the top.......

The last photos are from last weeks challenge which I managed to do but never posted!
We had some bad weather and I had to keep my computer off and unplugged for a few days.....
which made me miss the challenge posting deadline.......
too bad, as I really liked my card.....
the tag was just an extra I did, as I had a bunch of onsie templates I was making to design a card for a baby shower.........that's it
have a nice Sunday!

Your butterfly is fab, and I really like the large rose, works well as an outline and I bet it looks stunning when coloured.

Such a pretty collection of projects!

Less certainly is more when it comes to pretty cards like these! Blue and white is such a soothing combo, I think. Really love the last card, too, because I favor green and flowers so much. The onsie tag is adorable!
