Girls Like Blue Too

Hello.  Welcome.  Got this cute laser cut chipboard from Swedish House Crafts.  I think you are supposed to press the pretty mesh frame out of the surround, but then I would be keeping the surround and probably never use it, so I decided to use the whole thing.  It's slightly smaller than 6 x 4" so I thought it would make a great journal card for a PL LO.  

I used the back of the frame cos I liked the colour from the cutting.  The front side is much more of a neutral colour.  I found a piece of patterned paper and stuck it behind the mesh.  Using Gummiapan Coneflower die I cut lots of flowers from blue paper and added some colour with Promarkers.  I found a scrap of brusho coloured background and cut it with Memory Box Stitched Landscape dies.  I edged the journal card with Salty Ocean distress ink.

I stamped, embossed and fussy cut Magnolia's Ox Tilda stamp and coloured her with Promarkers.  I added a little heart button, some glitter to the coneflower centers and stamped the Unity sentiment with blue dye ink.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
