Cornflower Blue ...

Etsy Shop
Hi Everybody,

This card is non traditional colors for Valentines Day ... the red and white one yesterday sold almost straight away

I made one like this last week  and added  it to my   Etsy Shop   ... it sold within the hour and  ... and I am happy to say that this one has been bought also

This is using a lovely shade of Cornflower blue and it really is much prettier in real life.

Both of the hearts have the pearl "Bling" that matches the Spellbinders and it is from   Want2Scrap 

The background is the A4 folder  Picnic Plaid   from Crafters Companion.

The pretty blue and white Roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts

 I have used the  Ivy Leaf  die from Crafters Companion and this  is a die that you can use all year round.

The sentiment is one of the range called  Sentimentals  from Crafters Companion and there are several sets for you to choose each with a different theme.  Read the verses and decide which suit your needs.

The little butterflies I had in my "Stash" and this finished card is one of my favorites.

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  2. Morning Christina,
    Can fully understand why your two Valentine cards so quickly, they are both gorgeous.

  3. Hi Christina,
    Oh my giddy aunt.....such a very beautiful card. I just love your designs and I'm so pleased to have found your blog. Love the way you have set the hearts out then added the flowers. I would also make a wonderful Valentine's card. Many thanks for all the inspiration you pass on to us.

    Love Sheila xx

  4. I love that colour anyway Christina but it is lovely how you have made it! Could be a good male Valentine's card. Thanks for sharing.

  5. What a beautiful card Christina and it could be used for any reason apart from Valentine's Day. I love the hearts and the layout of the card, the embellishments are just gorgeous. Hugs, Jen xx

  7. Hi Christina, Just want to say hello and let you know I have been here. Sure do love your cards. Thanks for all you do.

  8. I certainly can see why this is one of your favorites - mine too! I like the idea of using non-traditional colors and will have to give it a try. Thanks for always inspiring me when I come to your blog.

  9. Love your style! Elegant, yet simply beautiful. Thanks

  10. Love the colours on this one Christina, its a great feeling when you finish a card and feel really proud of what you've made and even better when you receive lovely comments. Like so many I've learnt so much from you and really get a buzz from the compliments off the recipients. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I love all your card tutorials and suggestions. I want to buy some Nestibilities, but I don't know which of the one's are the most versatile for card-making. Which is your favorite (or favorites). I'm a beginner.

  12. This again is beautiful, different to the usual red Valentines cards....your work is so inspirational, I am not surprised they sell so quickly....luv Ursula

  13. Gorgeous, love that color blue combined with silver!
