Going Blue at the OSSC

I'm a bit late with this week's post for the One Stop Craft Challenge. I quickly planned a 1500 mile road trip to visit family. I had a great time exploring the US from Minnesota to Florida and arrived safely. It's taken me a few days to rest up and now I'm ready to start to enjoy my time here.

This week we are challenging you to create a BLUE card at One Stop Crafts. We are being sponsored by the Sassy Studio Designs. They have such fun images, perfect for coloring. I hope you can play along!

Embossed Rose Panel

I'm always challenging myself to use my supplies to create cards without adding my favorite past time of coloring images. Using just a few supplies I was able to come up with a lovely, elegant card; well, at least that's how I see it. :o)

Sketch Inspiration ~ 365 Cards Day 64 ~ White Space

It barely shows, but I rubbed a bit of SU chalk over the embossed rose.
To tie in the yellow base, I added a drop of Liquid Pearls to the center of the brad.
