AYSI273 Sympathy in Blue

Hi stampers!  Time for a new As You See It challenge, and it's a color challenge, chosen by me!  I just love blues!  So here we go:


Unfortunately, I needed a sympathy card, so I chose to use my blue hues with the Butterflies & Flowers mask (stencil), using my Blending Brush with each of the three colors on a Basic White panel:

I heat-embossed a retired sentiment in white on Pacific Point for my sentiment, then cut it out with the new Stylish Shapes dies; it went on the panel which was also diecut and mounted on a scalloped panel of Night of Navy:

I used a card base of Balmy Blue and a white mat, embossed with the Ornate Flowers embossing folder...sadly retiring.  It makes such a lovely floral background!  My final addition was some pale blue sequins from my stash and a white baker's twine bow!  My sketch came from FMS:

I hope you'll play along with us.  The design team has outdone themselves with this color palette...they've used them in some surprising ways!  Be sure to check them out at the As You See It blog!  Thanks so much for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!
