Crafty Bloggers Network Guest Blogger

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am here with a little bit of news, I am Guest Blogger at Crafty Bloggers Network this week so please pop over and have a read and let me know what you think, I really appreciate it :-)
For this post I made one of my favourite themes of cards-a Monochromatic card! I used a Stampin' Up stamp which I adore and stamped it with blue ink to match the papers which are Papermania Burleigh Blue Collection. I then cut a nestie for it and set it on a panel of blue patterned paper on an angle to add interest. I then mounted this panel on shimmery coredinations card in white. I then made my card base with two other blue patterned papers. I then embellished with ribbon and a matching bow from Papermania Portobello Road collection, and lastly added three coordinating pieces of card candy.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Joanna Sheen Challenges: Going Dotty
Panpastel UK: All about Stripes

City Crafter: Monochromatic
