Oh So Blue...And White Too!

Can you believe it is already the end of November and Thanksgiving is in just 3 days. I can't wait. Today being Tuesday it is time for another challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-Creations. This week is a really fun color challenge for everyone to play, blue and white or blue and silver. I happen to think that blue is one of the best colors ever created so I jumped at the chance to create a card in it!

Isn't this Magnolia snowman just the cutest. I just love that they also make a matching snowflake for the one that the snowman is holding. I stamped the side panel in different shades of blue ones to accent the image. I can't believe that I bought them lst year and are just getting around to using them now. I also had to include lots of blue gems, pearls and glitter! At my LSS they had these great clear snowflake buttons (the 2 at the corners of my image) that I colored blue with my Copics and added a pearl in the center. Don't you just love when find something that is fun to use as an added surprise!

All the DT love the color blue because it shows in the fabulous creations that they have created to inspire you this week. Be sure to stop by their blogs.
