Today I'd like to share a card which is suitable for any occasion and for male or female :o) At least I'd love to get this blue card :o)
I was very exited then I saw this week challenge at Charisma Cardz - Challenge #16 Blue, Black and White. I knew that i want to participate :o) Blue, black and white are colors of Estonian flag. I thought it would be fun to create a card with these colors.
I haven't done any CAS type card so far. It's strange 'cause many years in school I was teached "Less is more" I make cards for fun and it is fun to put all kind of stuff on the card, so I discard this instruction. But because in Phindys Place Challenge - Challenge #103 theme is Clean and Simple I thought I'll try to make one. I like the outcome :o) I should make some more CAS cards and try to make them even more simpler.
The Sweet Stop celebrates their 3rd birthday and they let to choose among any old sketches to participate their challenge. For Sweet Stop Sketches - Challenge #156 I chose sketch #SSS136
Cornflowers are my favorite flowers. They are so so beautiful. It is awesome that my birthday is in July 'cause my closest people bring me cornflowers or any other field flowers. It is so heartwarming then someone will picks flowers for me with their own hands :o) My favorite color is blue so blue cornflowers for me... oh, yes, please :o)
It was difficult to find a digistamp with cornflower. I found one but that was without stem. It didn't work for me so I kept searching. I didn't find digi stamp but found a coloring page from ClipArt ETC with lovely cornflower. I colored it as usual with water base felt markers (scribbled on to acrylic block) and water brush and some atYouSpica glitter marker Sky Blue. Also added small dots with Pergamano White gel pen.

My mother gave me a huge box full of all kind of buttons. I don't know why I haven't used them before. I find a cute cornflower shape button among them. It's perfect :o) Blue crochet yarn is also from my stash.
Upper right corner felt so empty so I added some Stanger pearl paste - White Pearl.Papers I use are bought from office supply store, that's why I don't know do they have any color name or brand.
I'd like to participate also on following challenges:
Love to Create Challenge - Challenge #13 - Flowers and Buttons (with optional sketch)
Joanna Sheen Challenge - Flower Power
Hooked on Craft Challenges - Challenge #20 - Flowers
Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge - Challenge #24 - Here Comes Summer
One more thing :o) Cornflower is also our national flower. Maybe I got to far with national things but I just love blue color and cornflowers :o) And summer is my favorite season. This card is all about my favorite things :o) No wonder I'm pleased with it... :o)
