Blue Christmas!

Today's card is for the color challenge on SCS. Fun one today you had to use two colors and one of them had to be the bleached out result of the first color--you could then add a neutral if you choose. I also combined it with the new Midnight Madness Challenge. Come on and play along, it makes you house smell so clean!

Here is the sketch for the week on the Midnight Madness blog

And my card..

Stamps: The more the merrier
Paper: Brilliant Blue, Whisper White
Ink: Brilliant Blue
Accessories: bleach, ribbon, pretties kit, bleach, scallop edge punch, rub ons (chit chat collection.
Techniques: bleach

Hope you have a fabulous day! It is still raining here, think I may have to invest in a boat to get to the grocery store--crazy weather this year!

I love snowmen and snowflakes almost as much as I love butterflies! This card is great!
