Blue on Blue

I'm getting in just under the wire for this week's Monkey Challenge. This week the challenge is to create a "blue" card following the sketch below:

Here's my card:

It's blue alright! The card base is Tempting Turquoise. The DSP is Nana's Kitchen from DCWV. The scalloped circles are Island Indigo dsp and card stock. The ice cream is Island Indigo stamped on Tempting Turquoise. I highlighted the ice cream with a white gel pen and also traced around the outside with the pen. I added a blue button and blue ribbon. I even found the "perfect" sentiment "True blue that's you" from the Goody Goody Gumdrop set (which is where the image came from).


  1. Wow. I'm so impressed you have a "blue" sentiment for this blue card challenge! You ROCK!!! That paper is so cute, and the ice cream looks delish. Thanks for playing with our Monkey Challenge, Marie.

  2. Love the "true blue" sentiment! Perfect for this card. Great idea to use the white gel pen on the ice cream, it really makes it stand out! Thanks for joining us at A La Card Monkey this week!! We love you!!


  3. What a sweet card. That dsp is great, and the white gel pen accents do really make that ice cream pop! Thanks for sharing.
