HIMCR #23 - Blue Color Challenge

Happy Saturday!!

Today starts a new month of challenges!  I hope everyone liked last month's challenges and were able to find some crafty time to play along!

The challenge this week, the 1st week of the month, is a Color Challenge:  Monochromatic Blues!  Neutrals can be added too.  I made mine a Christmas card because this time of year I hardly have time to work on anything else, but you can make it anything Blue!  A card, a tag, scrapbooking page/s, ATC, gift package, etc...  You have until Friday, December the 9th to link up your Blue creation to get entered into the monthly drawing this week.  I will be posting the December giveaway bundle December 9th after announcing November's winner on the 8th.  I can't wait to see all the pretty blue creations!

Here's what I came up with:

Snowflakes were cut at different sizes according to Snowflakes coordinating CTMH stamp set.

Card Base: SU Vintage Violet 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front:   SU Bashful Blue 4 1/8" X 5 3/8", DCWV the Winter Magic stack 4" X 5 1/4"
Other Cardstock / Paper:   White, la Creme stack
Ink:  Bashful Blue, Vintage Violet
Stamps:  CTMH Snowflakes & December 25th
Accessories:  Cricut & Art Philosophy Cartridge, SU bashful blue striped ribbon, rhinestones, Iridescent Medium, hemp

You can see the HIMCR schedule of challenges and guidelines HERE!  Please be sure and follow the few easy guidelines so your creation will get entered into the monthly giveaway!!!

Just a few guidelines: 
1.  The current weekly challenge linky will be up until Friday night at midnight MST.  Be sure and link your creation back to the actual post and not just your blog home page.
2.  When posting your creation on your blog or online gallery please link it back to this challenge.  This helps me to spread the word and the FUN!
3.  Please create something new for the current challenge and NOT use something you've made previously.  However, you can combine a HIMCR challenge with other challenges. It is always fun to complete more than one challenge at a time!
4.  The winner of the monthly giveaway will be posted the 8th of the following month!
5. Have FUN!!
6. Let me know if I forgot something!
