So the current challenge for SUO (Stampin' Up! Only!) is BLUE!!! They say, "To help us transition from the 2012 December holidays into the new year of 2013, what better theme for a challenge than the color blue!" And I agree!

Now easy, right? I have such a hard time with boundries! lol! Here's what I came up with:

I was trying to think spring!! I love this Island Indigo color! This one is fairly monochromatic-same color! Altho the Whisper White is there for accent, the cardstock, ink, & DSP are all Island Indigo! So this is blue! 

It's also an odd shape for me! I don't usually do squares because they aren't good to mail-they cost extra! But I just love that Lattice Bigz die with my Big Shot! It makes such a pretty background!!!

I used one of my favorite stamp sets, Serene Silhouette. Tough to tell in the big picture, but I "over embossed" it with clear embossing powder. Just to add that little "umph"!!! See...

Clear as a bell, right?? WRONG!! I got this beautiful new camera & have absolutely NO time to sit & figure it out!!! The camera is supposed to be designed for closeups, but I don't know how to make it pretty yet! I'll figure it out! I think what I need is a month away from everything & everyone to get caught up on life!!!! Gee! That's life!

Anyway, this is my entry for the SUO BLUE challenge!!!  Hope you like it!!!

Happy Stampin'!

  1. Very pretty card. I like the stamp that is in the circle. You'll get that camera figured out eventually. Just keep trying. I'm still trying to figure out some of the settings on mine and I've had it for years. Thanks for sharing your card -- love it.
