A Little Blue Hello

Happy Monday peeps, hope you had a great weekend!  The weather was marvelous here in PA!  I have a quick little card for you today using gingham again!  This time all the elements are SU!  I used the Global Design Project sketch (oops, missed that one!) and the Color My Heart Color Dare palette:

I feel my stamping has been really stale lately; I can't seem to get out of a rut, I need to try some new things (but this isn't one of them)!  Anyway, I took a sweet little flower from Bloom and Grow, embossed it in white on some Balmy Blue cardstock three times, then colored them in with two shades of blue Blends and diecut them with the matching die:

The Budding Blooms dies also come with two scalloped dies, so I used them to cut my Whisper White panel and gave it a little extra interest by adding some stitching, using a die from the Stitched Nested Labels set:

Finally, I stamped that cute little hello in Night of Navy ink and diecut it with a die from Stitched Labels, added a wee little bit of white twine and popped it up with some dimensionals.  It all went on top of a piece of Balmy Blue gingham DSP and a Balmy Blue mat!  Easy peasy!

Okay, here's something you don't see every day...and I guess you have to be of a certain age group to appreciate them.....pool floats called "Royal Flush".....I will let you draw your own conclusion!  But the kids loved them!  (I guess it's Walmart humor, LOL!)

On that note...enjoy your day and be blessed!

Hello Fresh! There's nothing stale about this card that I can see. Lots of detail in the flowers, love the design and what's not to love about gingham. Those pool floats, however...glad I didn't have a mouth full of coffee! Have a blessed week.
