Shades of Blue- part 2

I had originally posted one blogpost with both the cards but then realised I couldn't enter both the cards for the same challenge. So this card gets a separate blogpost.
You will have to scroll down to read the first half.

The next card I made is with the same colour theme of navy, aqua and lime.
 These squares measure 1 1/4 inches and the top set of squares have been rounded to show the bottom squares. I have added eyelets to give it a masculine look.
Here's a close up:
The 'happy birthday' stamp is from the Curly Cute stamp set of Stampin' Up. Isn't it beautiful?

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays: CFC63- Lime, Aqua and Navy
Clean & Simple: 200- sketch

Beyond Grey Challenges: BGC#13- Card without Stamping (sentiments allowed)

Hope you liked this one too. Feel free to leave me your comments.

Shades of Blue- part 1

Its been some time that I've been in the mood for crafting. But this weekend, I was raring to go. Friday night I looked online for inspiration from some challenges and I was truly inspired. Saturday early morning I started and the ideas kept flowing. I was working with a deadline of mid morning since my niece and nephew were coming home and I would not be able to get any work done with them around.
There are 2 cards I made on Saturday. There were more ideas I had in mind however time didnt permit me. So here is one:

 The next image is a close up. The dark blue mat is actually inked with the Brilliance Mediterranean Blue ink drop. Looks good, doesn't it?
The squares measure 3/4 inches. The sentiment is from Curly Cute of Stampin' Up!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Beyond Grey Challenges #13: Card without stamping
CAS-ual Fridays CFC63: Challenge colours - lime, aqua and navy

I really love the outcome of my saturday morning and love the colour combination of these cards.
Do let me know what you think about it.

Just in Time!

For the past few weeks, I have tried participating in a few challenges. However, I always ended up missing the dates. So today I made a card to participate in 3 different challenges. Whew!!
And im posting it just in time. (I hope!)

All these 3 challenges are unique ones:
Indian Craft Room: ICR19- Fancy Folds + Anything but an easel card.
Beyond Grey Challenges: BGC #12- Challenge Ombre
For the love of crafting: Challenge #8- Anything goes with twist (brown or shades of brown)

I came across this card on Night Owl Designs and I was very fascinated. I just had to try it. So today within an hour, my card was ready.
Here it is:

A star card. It looks intricate and tough but its not difficult at all following the directions of Cliona Larkin.
When you open it, this is how it looks:

Another look:

Isn't it unique? Do let me know what you think.

Hope you all had a great weekend.
