Simon Says Stamp's Challenge DT - Summertime Blues

This week at Simon Says Stamp's challenge we have a theme for you - "summertime blues", so we'd like to see blue on your cards and projects. As always you have the chance to win a whopping $25 gift certificate for the Simon Says Stamp store from Heidi!

The DT are showcasing Stampabilities stamps this week so I chose to use this cute House Mouse image. The papers are from Basic Grey's Euphoria pad. I have to admit I struggled with this card and tried several different papers and embellishments and am still not entirely happy but I ran out of time.

I have coloured the image with copics and added glossy accents to the glass and icecube which looks great in real life but difficult to show on a photo unfortunately.

I added some pink Prima hydrangeas to lift the blue together with a button and some blue flowers from my stash. The sentiment is from hAnglar & sTanglar, stamped with faded jeans distress ink and cut out with a nestability tag die.

I punched the cardstock under the image with MS double loops punch and threaded it with some ribbon from my stash.

Hope you like it and can join us this week at Simon Says Stamp's Challenge. Pop over to the blog and see the rest of the teams gorgeous cards. Thanks for looking! x

This is so delightful, I just sat drinking it in & the glossy accents show up pretty well on my screen. Love the ribbon threading too.
