Blue Love

Today felt like a "blue" day.  Not that I was feeling "blue" but rather I felt like mixing blues and soft shades of brown ... a wonderful duo, don't you agree?  The LOVE LOVE tickets layered on a beautifully printed paper was all it took to pull this card together.  I added a die cut crown (still playing with my new Big Shot toy so I hope you don't get tired of seeing die cuts) then a felt flower stacked with buttons.  A heart cut from a brocade pattern, a happy banner and a shabby bow embellish the crown.  The decorative pins are such fun to make - you can create any combination of colors and shapes only limited by the beads and baubles you can find.  Scraps of lace are always a treasure to add here and there ... I love every piece no matter how small.  Thanks for letting me share some LOVE with you today!


  1. Lovely layers of love Joanne! The snippet of lace is delicate and pretty tucked under those fabulous tickets!!

  2. I hope that one day I will be able to create something as stunning as this....sigh... Blue is my very faovrite color and this card took my breath away. Love it!

  3. Beautiful, Joanne. I love all of the different shades of the blues and browns together. And of course, that bow is stunning!
