Happy Monday!  I know I'm late again on my challenge post...after announcing the winner of my Crafter's Dream giveaway early this morning, I got to cleaning the kitchen (and I mean really cleaning...wowza...) I sort of forgot that it was Monday!  Lol...that ever happen to you?

Anyhow, this week at Digi Makeover we are challenging you to make a Thank You card or gift!  Perfect time of year for this challenge :)

This past weekend we were invited to have dinner with one of Matthew's co-workers and his wife.  We're still working on building friendships here in Montreal, so we were super excited to finally make this connection!  We had an absolutely fabulous time with them!  And while sitting in their cozy apartment, I couldn't help but be in awe at their bright blue and green walls.  So I used those colors as inspiration for my card today :)
Sorry for the bad picture...Not sure why it turned out so yellowish...I just couldn't get the light to bounce correctly last night...

So I cut the white overlay design with my Silhouette Cameo!  That took me a few tries.  At first it was too small so the paper just shredded through the I made it bigger and then it cut off the page.  I was able to get the right size though and glued it all down onto an embossed piece of blue cardstock.

Then I cut the frames out and printed the sentiment.  The sentiment is a new one at Paper Makeup but I don't see it in the shop yet!  Check back later! :)

I cut out a large blue swirl flower, and then made 3 two-tone roses to decorate the lower corner.  Finished it off with a bow and 3 blue gemsr!  I'm pretty happy with this card.  I love the color combination and the simplicity of the whole thing.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
    Alota Rubber Stamps #94-Blue and White
    Bearly Mine #59-Flowers Galore
    Delicious Doodles #9-Embossing
