Something Funny, Something Blue...

This came in a very funny email from a friend the caption said, "I think the woodpecker might have to go.", LOL! Our little DD loves monkeys, she spoted it right away how about you? I will probably still be laughing as you are reading this post.

This card was made for the way to use it challenge, the Thursday challenge over on SCS, there is a link on the right hand side of my blog to the weekly challenges. Thursday 24,08 was called Paint the town red WT150, meaning you were supposed to use paint somewhere on your creation. For this card I first ran a piece of SU Brocade Blue through the CB embossing folder Divine Swirls, just on the bottom half. Next I painted the bottom half with Folkart Blue Metallic Paint and let it dry. Then I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs with the same paint on the top half of the card and let it dry. The entire card was then sponged with a Not Quite Navy ink pad. For the top portion of the card I also had some blue pear fabric paint that I sponged over the flourish.
With the addition of some bling and ribbon I thought this would make an awesome Wedding card. Have you ever tried painting on a card, me either that is until yesterday.

The photo does not do this card any favors, it is so sparkly and wonderful IRL and you can't see any of that in the photo.

Happy Stamp Day!
