Guest Designing at Colour me....! challenge #57

Hi Everyone,

I am sooooo excited to have been invited to guest design at colour me....! this month! Yeahhh!!! This is a fabulous color challenge - you probably all know it and if not - you should check it out and PLAY! For the first week we have this stylish inspiration picture for you. 
Monochromatic navy it is for the first week.



And here is my card:


I first sponged the background with navy ink and then sponged again with an ARTplorations stencil (Hearts All Over) with a slightly brighter shade of blue. Added 2 die cut hearts (Simon Says), a bit of silver string and the sentiment - also by Simon Says stamps. The little stitched flag is from Lil' Inkers.

I wanted to go away from the traditional red/pink Valentine's Day card with this blue one. I think it works!

Now head on over to the colour me....! blog and get inspired by their fabulous DT girls and hopefully you'll have time to play with us this week.

Challenges I play in with this card:
Snippets Playground - use a snippet - the die cut hearts and the banner
Simon Says flickr goup - Love theme
Simon Says - Work it Wednesdays - Love theme
