Inkspirational Challenge - Blue with White or Cream

Good morning!  It's another challenge over at Inkspirational!  This time the challenge is to create a project using only blue and white (or cream).  Different shades of blue are perfectly fine and black can be used as well (in limited quantities).  Doesn't matter what style of card or the occasion.  Come and join in the fun!

This is what I came up with...

It's funny, it looks like I used different shades of blue for the butterflies but I didn't.  I couldn't seem to take a picture that didn't do that.  Oh well.  The butterflies are from a set of clings by Stampendous.  Love them!  The flowers were stamped in a lighter blue and come from a cling set by Inkadinkado.  The sentiment is from STAMPlorations Trendy Feathers set.  It's just a one layer card but I did add a few pearls here and there.  They are quite small so they don't distract.

I hope you can all join us in the fun!  Winner gets to be a future guest designer!  :-)

I'm going to link up to the following challenges:

Darnell's (djkardkreations) NBUS challenge - both the butterflies and the flowers are never-before-used-schtuff!  :-). Check out her challenge/blog!  She's awesome!

Runway Inspired Challenge - inspired by the blue and white of the dress.  Replaced the birds with butterflies.

I'd also like to take a moment and welcome a new follower!  Welcome to Kathy of Stamps at Play!  She's a talented card artist and well worth checking out.

Well, that's it for today.  Going to get our new puppy this morning.  Going to be a crazy summer!  :-). Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
