Double D Challenges Blue and White

It's the first Wednesday of the month and that means it is also
the beginning of a new challenge at Double D Challenges.
This challenge is hosted by Team Diane and the theme is
Blue and White
and the inspiring mood board below.

I just love this board as it is so soft and pretty!

I saw a pretty card layout on Pinterest and it really caught my eye,
so I went in that general direction, but yet changing it enough
to make it my own!

Though I have 'cooled my jets' so to speak on buying things (I'm trying at least)
I couldn't resist this beautiful stamp from WOW 'Make A Wish'
as it was half off from Paper Wishes.

I embossed both the image and the sentiment with
Sparkle N Sprinkle Cerulean embossing powder...
so very deep and so very pretty!
I love how the EP gives all the detail.
I layered rectangle stitched dies from Tutti Designs
Nesting Stitched Rectangles.

I also used a very neglected  crafting tool, my crimper.
I placed a panel of that underneath,
you can just barely see the crimps in the photo, but they are there.
I love how this card turned out and I am sure
you will see more of this stamp set used in the future!

Make sure and head on over to the Double D Challenges and see
all the gorgeous and inspiring creations from the team,
those girls are so beautifully creative!!

Entering the following FABULOUS challenges:
Creative Moments .... ATG Optional Birthday

Oh, that dandelion is so pretty in blue with the sparkle! Some things are just too hard to resist. I know whereof I speak, believe me. Gee, I haven't used my crimper in forever, either, but now it's on my stamping to-do list along with a bazillion other things. I adore your card, Diane!
