Blue and white

There are some colours that just go together like; brown and gold, green and yellow, black and white, navy and cream, well you get where I am coming from, but there is one colourway that reminds me of warm weather, Mediterranean holidays especially Greece.  It just gives the impression of been crisp and clean and that is...........

 Blue and White.

This is a card I made with out any images just relied on the colour scheme to give it -  oomph!

I embossed the card with cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder. As the card is slightly bigger than the folder I used an edging punch along the bottom, put in a blue ribbon in between to finish the edge.  The blue and white die-cut panel came with the glittery blue border and the blue dots all I had to do was add the flowers and butterflies. Voilá, one crisp card.

Die-Cut: Papermania - Capsule Collection
Embossing: Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots

Hope you like,

I don't use blue and white much. Perhaps I should! This is really elegant and pretty Vicky. X

I love how your pattern paper matches your embossing :) very clever! I personally love blue and white together, it always makes me think 'Tiffany', don't know why :)
