PaperPlay challenge week 29

One advantage of being home sick is that I can sit in bed and read the blogs!!!!!  I've got another head cold - but this time it's gone to the chest and I've got an infection!!!!  So a couple of days off work... ( even if I did sneak out to see the Auckland Philharmonic Orchestra last night - which was amazing.  Beautiful music) I spend the morning in bed and got up early afternoon and made a card for the Paperplay challenge - Blue Cream and one other colour. 
I stamped the Dogwood stamp with Crushed Olive and Chipped Sapphire distress inks and then used the inks to colour it in.  Edged it with the blue ink and added to a card base that was embossed with a CB folder.  Added the cream ribbon.  It didn't quite turn out how I it pictured in it my head,  but it's okay.

Have also been playing round with some new stamps - lots of half finished cards - and stamped images.  Give me something to do over the weekend.

Thanks for visiting - appreciate your comments and thoughts

Feel better soon, Dawn! I like how this turned out - really vibrant blue! First I'd seen the chipped sapphire in use.

Gorgeous card, Dawn - I love the stamp, and the colour scheme is perfect with it. Lucky you living in NZ, it's top of my list of long-haul flight places to visit - someday. And I have second cousins in Auckland too!!

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
