Feeling Blue (and Green)

Good morning and happy Monday - welcome to July. Do you remember this time last year when it was so hot in the UK - I know some parts have had lots of sunshine, but here in Yorkshire we're still waiting for the sun to turn up. I guess those who are sweltering in 40+ feel really sorry for me!
Of course a new month means it's time for a new challenge at Country View Crafts, and this time the lovely Corrie has chosen Blue's and Greens. 

 I knew that I had the perfect Craftwork Cards paper pad, I even knew which drawer it was in, but of course it was at the bottom, and everything had to come out - then I couldn't get it all back in - so it stayed on the floor for days - you get the picture...

 I stamped my tag with an AALL & Create stamp. I used my stamping platform so was able to use lots of blue and green ink. I also added a 'go big or go home' ribbon.

And lots of sparkle with a clear sparkle pen.

And we're all done. This is my auntie's birthday card for NEXT year - how's that for organisation!

This was a fun challenge so I hope that you join in. You can also use black, white, and flesh colour, but the main colours must be blue and green.

Have a wonderful July, and thanks very much for looking x
