Feeling Blue with Bows

 Tonight’s card fulfilled three different challenges. The first is for Day 185 at 365 Cards. The challenge was to use three shades of blue on our card. Check!The second challenge is for Just Magnolia Week 20. The card needed to have ribbons and bows on it. Double check! The third challenge is for A spoonful of sugar #67. That one required distressing on the card. Triple check!


I began by coloring a RAK Magnolia image that I recently received. I used the following Copics to color her in: E000, E00, E11, E33, E59, B21, B24, Y21, YR21, R01, R20, R81, R83, R85. I cut her out and placed foam strips to pop her up. I used my SU Top Note die and distressed the edges with my Tim Holtz distress tool. I sponged SU Bashful Blue on the diecut and went heavily on the edges. I also sponged Bashful Blue on the pp and cardbase. I added two strips of ribbon with small white bows to the top of the card. The mini hearts and ice cream cone are buttons by Jesse James Dress it Up. A hint of Crystal Ice Stickles was added to her ice cream scoop. The sentiment is from MFT What’s the Scoop set.  Thanks for stopping by today:)
