Matching Pair


As promised, here is the second of the two blue cards I made the other day. You'll see, I'm still in my try something different, stress myself out and make me doubt myself phase! ;)

I wanted the two blue cards to be different, but at the same time I wanted to carry certain elements across, so that you can tell they are together! So the doodling, blue, spotty paper, flowers and scallop edge are from yesterdays card.

I was a little unsure about this when I finished it, but it has been growing on me since then. To the extent that I can't bring myself to give them to the laydee in question yet! LOL.

Cardstock: Stampin Up!
Papers: Paloozle Pizazz, Cupcake Cards and Crafts
Stamps: Pick a Petal, Itty Bitty Buds & For Everything; Stampin Up!
Colouring: Stampin Up! Ink
Tools: Scallop die; Die-Namics
